Utande expands offering with introduction of Wi-Fi hotspots


MAXspotWi-Fi hotspots are the next best thing for internet users who don’t want to commit themselves to “on the go” mobile broadband plans like those dongles that work sometimes and not sometimes. They also serve as that crucial backup internet when your usual office or home connection (or Dongle-wanaland itself) shakes you off the network for hours and your ISP seems in a hurry to not fix it. In short, they serve a great purpose in our local connectivity ecosystem.

We were delighted therefore to learn that the ISP known now to provide the most stable WiMax based internet (but quality comes at a price) is expanding its offering to include Wi-Fi hotspots. Called MAXspots, Utande’s Wif-Fi hotspots have so far been installed at 7 locations in Harare, and, according to Dandemutandec customer services manager, Sue Bolt (who told us on Facebook), several more are in the process of being implemented.

The hotspots are accessible vouchers and the pricing (very comparable to their competition) is both time and data based. Basically this:

Voucher Cost
30 mins $1.00
60 mins $2.00
100MB $5.00
500MB $20.00
1GB $35.00

So far, the ISPs that have taken a deliberate approach to having Wi-Fi hotspots around the country are YoAfrica, ZOL and Telco.
