Vodacom Tanzania has launched its 4G LTE network in the city of Dar es Salaam - the largest city in Tanzania and the largest city in eastern Africa by population.
The operator has selected Nokia to support its 4G LTE deployment and to manage its network. The network is initially expected to deliver downlink speeds of up to 70Mbps. Vodacom targets to increase the downlink speeds to 200Mbps and plans to expand the service throughout the country.
Tigo telecom, another mobile operator in the country which first launched its 4G LTE service in Dar es Salaam early last year has recently expanded the service to Arusha, Tanga, Dodoma, Morogoro, Moshi and Mwanza.
