    people will now have to spend more to buy internet in tanzania from today.this is due to ISP to increase the prices.Question is,than why were we told that after the fibre optic cable prices will go very low.why only this kind of things happen in tanzania?to me i think ,tanzania is the worst place to live on this earth,if things will go like this.Why our neighbours managed to reduce the prices after the cable became operational?i am going crazy....god help my country,which is burning to ashes.

    Mkuu acha kumislead public . . . prices zinaenda chini.

    Before Fiber 1 Mbps / 1 Mbps ilikuwa $ 6000
    Baada ya Fiber rate ilishuka ikawa $ 2800
    Ikaendelea kushuka last year ikastic kati ya $ 1000 hadi $ 1500
    Sasa hivi prices ni kati ya $ 500 hadi $ 1000

    Sasa ni wapi bei zinazidi kupanda?

    In Kenya price ya 1 Mbps/1 Mbps ni kati ya $ 250 hadi $ 450

    Nyie watu wa IT tuelekezi vyema siye tusiye na ufaham wa mambo yao. Ukisema Mbps inamaana ni transfer rates. Sasa swali langu je hao subscribers wanauza kwa transfer rates? I thought ingekuwa kwenye GB etc. Kwanini iko hivyo mnavyosema ipo?

    nimekuelewa paulss, yaani hapo nilichukua najaribu kusema, ni kama mtu akuambie 1 + 1 = 5, si kila mtu anajua huu ni uzushi bila hata ya maelezo mengi, yaani iko wazi kihivyo huna haja hata kuomba source, info yake haiko sawa sawa kabisa, we si unatumia internet angalia ISPs wanavoprice products zao hakuna kitu kama 1Mbps/1Mbps. . .hamna haja ya source hapa

    $ means USD

    Mbps Means unapata Internet Unlimited si ya kupimiwa katika Kibaba (GB). Ni kama una bomba la maji ulilofungulia maji usiku na mchana lakini unalipa fixed amount in a Month. Uwe umefunga bomba au umefungulia u are paying the same.

    GB means unapimiwa kwenye kibaba. Ni kama ukinunua maji kwenye kidumu, au ndoo, au pipa au tabker. Yakiisha unanunua mengine.

    GB inatumiwa zaidi na Telcom Companies.

    Proper ISP na Makampuni wanaotumia Internet wengi wananunua in Mbps au Kbps.

    kweli inasikitisha sababu internet imeshuka bei sana nchi nyingi na inazidi kushuka

    sasa mie nadhani serikali inakitu na hii kama wao ndio waatoa masharti

    sababu nasikia na costs za kupiga simu toka nje kuja Tanzania ni ghali karibu mara 2 au 3 kuliko nchi za jirani kama Uganda na Kenya

    kampuni moja mtu aliwauliza vipi mbona ni bei inapanda tu kupiga TZ wazungu wakadema ni nchi yrtu inacharges kubwa wakipandisha nao wanapandisha

    shame kweli on TZ

    Local internet providers hike user fees
    By Felix Andrew
    4th January 2011EmailPrintComments New rates more than doubled in most cafes
    Users complain they cannot afford to pay the new rates

    Local internet users in Dar es Salaam and other parts of the country will have to dig deeper into their pockets following an increase of price charged for the services.

    Most internet cafés in Dar es Salaam have hiked the price from 700/- to 1500/- per hour while others are charging between 1000/- and 2000/- per hour.

    Investigation done by this paper in some internet cafes in city centre, Tabata and

    Mbagala show that the price changes might bar many people from accessing the service.

    Speaking to this paper some of the internet café users said a price hike will deny them the services since they cannot afford the increase.

    "People like students or low income earners cannot afford to get the services in those cafes since it has doubled, "said Stuwart Kimambo.

    He said the costs of internet should be kept low to enable as many people as possible get various information and materials.

    "Last year we were told that the once the fibre optic cable is ready the internet costs would go down. But this has not happened," he said.

    An internet café operator at Mbagala , identified as Joachim Kailembo, said they have been compelled to increase the price after the internet service provider (ISP) increased their prices.

    "When our ISP hikes its price we are also forced to increase the price for our end user customers," he said.

    Last year, Tanzania Telecommunication Company Limited (TTCL) which is one of major ISPs in the country announced reduction of its internet charges by 50 per cent in order to pass on the benefits to the end users after its connecting to the

    Seacom submarine fibre optic cable.

    TTCL Public Relations Manager Amin Mbaga was quoted as saying the new price has seen high volume Internet users including small scale entrepreneurs, banks, students in the higher learning institutions and business community enjoy a substantial internet bandwidth cost reduction.

    The number of ISP/Data operators has increased to 62 by June 2009 from 60 at the end of 2008.
