Internet in Tanzania
I find the way we access the Internet from home here in Tanzania to be quite interesting. Tanzania is “skipping” the whole wiring of houses phase and going straight for mobile broadband. It doesn’t make much sense to dig up and lay cable in a city and country that is growing and changing so quickly… not to mention the fact that people would dig up said wiring to sell the copper for money. Enter the USB device you see hanging off the end of my laptop.
A close up shot of the USB broadband device. It’s great because wherever we take our laptops, we have (most of the time) pretty snappy Internet service for about $18/month for each of us. And guess who needs to clean his dusty keyboard?
