Dovetel Limited, using its subsidiary Sasatel, has launched a WiMax network in Tanzanian capital Dar es Salaam. They plan to target large businesses and corporate customers after launching an EV-DO internet service in 2009.
Sasatel became the seventh company to provide mobile services in Tanzania that covers the major parts of its capital. The new service would be expanded to other parts of the country in the next phase of deployment. The Tanzania Communications Regulatory Authority granted WiMax licenses to Dovetel in June 2008. Professor Peter Chitamu founded the company in 2005 with funding from the Infrastructure Fund.
