Fixed telecoms provider TelOne expects to add on 100,000 ADSL subscribers as it activates the $98 million loan it secured through its primary shareholder the government.

Speaking to Techzim, the chairman of TelOne, Charles Shamu, highlighted the plans they have made for the $98 million network upgrade project which will also facilitate the development of its mobile network.

TelOne currently has 76,000 active ADSL subscribers and it is the sole provider of the broadband alternative in the country.


According to Shamu ADSL’s limited capacity has prompted the operator to focus some of its investment in fibre, though it is still eyeing growth in ADSL services.

TelOne has 270,000 active voice subscribers using its landline service with a capacity of 333,000 users. These are the same users that can be converted for ADSL.

The potential growth of ADSL informs market strategies for services in emerging sectors like Video on Demand which require stable connections that broadband alternatives like fibre and ADSL are best suited to provide.
