Commenting on the new Africa roaming service, Rene Meza, Managing Director at Vodacom Tanzania says, “We know that people want to remain connected at an affordable rate whether they are at home or on holiday in South Africa or travelling for work in Ghana and that nobody likes the headache of worrying about roaming bills. 

 “What we’re launching today is a solution to give our customers peace of mind when travelling. Data roaming has been and still is an expensive affair for most operators and today we are so proud to reduce substantially together with voice and SMS our data roaming charges for our customers travelling in any of our African family.

“This and the many products and services we have launched lately at Vodacom Tanzania are in keeping with our promise to stay the best, with the most value network in Tanzania. More should be expected from us in the coming weeks and months,” concluded Meza.
