TelOne turns ON the fibre broadband link in Victoria Falls (updated)

teloneTelOne today launched new broadband services in Victoria Falls. 16 Days before the UNWTO General Assembly, the company has put up 22 Wi-Fi hotspots in the area. The development comes after the completion of the fibre optic connection between Victoria Falls and Bulawayo. The fibre link is aimed to avail low cost and fast internet to Vic Falls. (Update after establishing the fact that TelOne has not completed an all fibre link between the two places.)

Meanwhile TelOne is also getting broadband internet bandwidth from Namibia telecom through West Africa Cable System (WACS) to ensure constant service uptime during the event. The 22 Wi-Fi hotspots cover the whole resort town and the data bundle prices are quite competitive when compared to prices of services that are already available in the area. The prices are as listed below.

  1. Those are some Kick-A$$ prices. Hopefully one day those will be the prices when one dials *140#….

  2. Sorry to burst your bubble but this report is incorrect, Telone has no existing Optic Fibre link between Bulawayo and Vic Falls, its all microwave. Only Liquid Telecom has that infrastructure!!!
