Yesterday we spoke about TelOne’s new corporate identity and how the telecoms operator would be launching a couple of new products at an official corporate event.
The event which is being held in Harare, is far from over, but other than the new logo shown above, we have managed to glean some important details about TelOne’s products.
TelOne Fibre To The Home (FTTH)
The star product tonight has been the new TelOne Fibre TO The Home offering. Initial deployement will be in Harare in areas like Mt Pleasnt Heights, Westgate, Madokero, Ruwa and Zimre Park. According to TelOne these areas have the capacity to connect over 15,000 homes. The TelOne FTTH has also been crossed over to Norton, Zvishavane and Ngezi.
What’s the cost?
There are 3 packages available. The entry package, dubbed the Starter Package, is priced at $36 with speeds of up to 5 Mbps and a download cap of 20 GB. This goes head to head with the ZOL Fibroniks package set at $39
The Boost Package is set at $70 for speeds of up to 10 Mbps and a download cap of 50 GB.
The Intense Package is the leader of the pack with unlimited downloads and is pegged at $118 with speeds of up to 20 Mbps. Installation of fibre will set you back $50.
TelOne Metro City WiFi Hotspots
TelOne has introduced WiFi hotspots around the city of Harare and 10 sites have been cited as being online already. These sites are
- TelOne Centre for Learning
- Julius Nyerere Way
- Runhare House
- Cleveland House
- Roadport/ Amtec
- Montagu Heights
- TelOne Shop Harare Showgrounds
- TelOne Shop Joina City
- TelOne Shop Borrowdale
The Metro City WiFi project is being rolled to other parts of Zimbabwe, but, just like the FTTH we are yet to get definitive dates on when this will show up in other corners of Zimbabwe.
