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.

  1. Please improve Telone improve your data network. Slow and unresponsive. Speed checks might tell you have a 2.6 mbps but it takes ages to open a page.. Facebook and gmail are the worst. You need to upgrade your adsl equipment.

    1. You need your line checked(which is a nightmare because they will tell you the line is fine). You also need to verify the the distance from CO, the further you are, the less reliable it is. On speed checking, make sure you test with servers outside afrika.

      1. Gary i agree with you. speed checks give me around 1.8mb but the download speeds never exceed 260kb/s even at night. Using the internet in the morning or afternoon is actually a nightmare!!!

  2. 1 wish the technicians could respond timeously to reported faults. I am clocking a full month to an unattended faulty line in Chiredzi.
