People think of internet as being accessible all over the world; little do they know that there are parts of the world where internet is still inaccessible.  Internet has integrated so much in our lives that we have been soaked and synced with it-some can really do without internet. All of the time they are trying to do or find out something about a certain topic; what I like about it is that information is now in the palm of our hands; you don’t need to go to the library in search of data-all you do is to open up your browser and search.  For some tourists when they are travelling to another country, they all think of what they are going to do to access internet. It is something that all most becomes a wary to many. Well, if you decide on packing your bags to Tanzania, here are some of the things you should know about the internet in Tanzania while you are on your safari.

One way to access internet is buying a local simcard.

When you get to Tanzania, it is easy to buy a local simcard from telecommunication companies already established in the country. You can buy from Airtel, Tigo, Vodacom and other telecom companies. The reason as to why you need a local simcard is to access the data services provided by the telecom companies. Telecom companies have now shifted their emphasis on data since they know that there has been a decline in their voice services. You just have to buy a sim card for any authorized dealer or telecom outlet. One thing for sure is that you must register for your simcard with your passport since you are a foreigner. The good news is registration doesn’t take a long time and you can finish the process within an hour and you get connected. Afterwards, you just buy the local data bundles depending on how much you need to use.

There is always wi-fi at the hotel/lodge.

If you think you are not avid internet users, you can just decide that you shall be using free internet services at your hotel. This is possible and since you are one of their clients, you shall able to access the services for free. Hotel internet can be enough for you to communicate with your friends and family. You can use your phone to access internet even without a simcard- yes it is possible as long as there is Wi-Fi- you don’t need  a simcard. If you carried a laptop, you can install any emulator like bluestack and install all the apps that you would like to use. For example, you could decide to install whatsapp and start to chat and video call your friends and family.

The internet is not censored.

Censored internet is that internet where some information is blocked from your access. It could be information related to politics or simply some applications or website that the government thinks that they are not good to their citizen or applications and website which the government thinks that they pose a risk to their existence. In Tanzania, the internet is not censored; there is no need to look for different proxy servers to access whatever you want. You don’t need VPN applications here. Every information is available at your figure tips.

The internet is accessible in most parts of the country.

When Google and Facebook plus other companies are developing systems that can enable people access internet in most parts of the world where internet is not accessible, you might say how is this possible. Everyone is connected to the internet. As a matter of fact, most people around the world live in places where internet is not accessible. Most times, it is because the costs of setting the internet infrastructure is sometimes more expensive and the return on the investments are not promising. In Tanzania, thanks to the competition in the telecommunication industry, internet is accessible in most parts of the country so you don’t have to worry about being disconnected.
