The government of Tanzania has made a swap on the new microwave link designed to better the communication between the Island of Zanzibar and the country’s main land.
The link adds one from the main landline operator, Tanzania Telecommunications Company Limited (TTCL) and received funding at a cost of $1.6 million with support from Japan.
“We are now sure of effective communication in Zanzibar,” the Minister for Communication, Science and Technology, Prof Makame Mbarawa at the inauguration of the link. “With this new link, people of Zanzibar will now communicate without hurdles.”
The construction of the link was in progress last year and has been productively completed.
