Over recent years, Internet access speeds have increased greatly to keep pace with the demand of new services and bandwidth-hungry applications, such as streaming live video content. New technologies have been adopted that can support the current need for increased bandwidth.
Africom offers various solutions for fixed internet for the home, small to medium enterprise and large corporate clients. To this end, Africom offers two types of fixed internet solutions:
a) Wimax (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access)
b) UBNT (Ubiquiti Networks)
Both of these are wireless internet systems which are radio based and work on a direct line of sight basis. They are similar to long-range wifi but can enable connection at much larger distances. The technologies are comparable in terms of quality of internet experience and cost for the service.
Africom has several base stations in almost all residential suburbs in Harare and in other major towns, namely Mutare, Gweru and Bulawayo with the most recent being Marondera.
In Harare, the Warren Park station is the latest base station to be installed to boost quality UBNT reception in areas including Warren Park, Kuwadzana, Kuwadzana Extension, Kambuzuma, Mufakose, Granary, Glaudina, Dzivarasekwa and Dzivarasekwa Extension. Marondera UBNT coverage now includes Yellow City, CBD, Borradale, and Dombotombo. Expansion is earmarked for Rusape, Kadoma, Kwekwe, Gwanda, Beitbridge and Masvingo.
