Six Telecoms Data has launched its new Metro Network in Tanzania. The comprehensive data network covers Dar es Salaam, Arusha, Moshi, Mwanza, Shinyanga, Dodoma, Morogoro, Iringa, Mbeya, and Mtwara.

The Telecoms Data Metro Network was designed with corporates in mind. The company has indicated that it built the network to Tier-1 carrier grade redundancy specifications, meaning that the company built the Metro Network for companies that cannot afford to lose connectivity ever!

Connections to customer premises are provided via digital Fiber Optic Cable and have a redundant licensed microwave link to ensure uptime, this includes global internet access via all three submarine cables (Seacom, Teams, and EASSY) for always on connectivity in case of catastrophic cable cuts or interruptions ensuring Metro clients are “always up”.

Through the Metro Network, the company looks to provide clients with the specific level of connectivity they need; beyond Fiber Optic connectivity, Metro offers licensed microwave as well as WiMaxx (WiFi) coverage as well. This means that whatever a company’s specific data needs and budget might be, Metro has the solution all delivered over a world class secure and dedicated private data network.

Commenting on the development, Nick Odero, CEO of 6 Telecoms Data said:

“As companies grow and expand in Tanzania it is important that they have a dedicated network that will allow for them to connect all of their branches in a redundant and secure manner that is robust and cost effective. Metro is aligned to act as a business development partner for our clients as reliable and secure networks are a vital component to growth within East Africa.”

Six Telecoms Data is already a major player in the East Africa’s telecoms sector, providing various solutions to companies like MTN Business, KDN, Safaricom, Barclays Bank, Pan African Energy, Tigo, Kenya Airways, Stanbic Bank, KPMG, British Gas, and Deloitte, all of whom rely upon the Six Telecoms Data network to deliver high quality uninterrupted connectivity.

Metro is available as of yesterday and connecting your business is easy and seamless!
