Tanzania: Isles Internet Service Provider Pushes to Expand Market

Zanzibar — ZANLINK Internet Service Provider (ISP) in Zanzibar has announced a plan that could see highspeed fibre optic networks rolled out to many areas of the islands.

"Plans are underway to extend the current fibre optic network to other areas in Zanzibar," Mr Sanjay Raja, the Managing Director of Zee Communications Limited running Zanlink, said in Zanzibar at the launch of Zanlink new brand identity.

Raja said that the new brand identity which also includes new logo, tagline, and website; and rolling out 4G WiMax Technology aims at better services to its current and potential customers.

He said, "The new identity is both modernized and more visually compact, connecting with consumers in a friendly and elegant way, emphasizing that Zanlink is a human and approachable brand."

Earlier this year, Zanlink completed building a Point of Presence (PoP) in the Tanzania mainland providing various VLAN and Layer2 data links, a scope to form a strategic partnership with other Global operators across East Africa.

The 14-year-old Zanlink evolved from just a dial-up internet connection provider to a company that now serves almost 65 per cent of the total market with services ranging from fast broadband, hosting solutions, network management, online surveillance and other connectivity.
