Blaze LTE service is an affordable internet connection using Wireless technology called Long Term Evolution (LTE). TelOne Blaze requires an Outdoor / Indoor / Mobile Modem which connects to TelOne Base stations to provide Internet Access.

 

The new LTE service is not a mobile service but a fixed connectivity solution with limited mobility. The sim card offered for the Blaze service is placed in a modem or Wi-Fi router/ Mi-Fi device as well as some handsets with the Frequency band (FDD-LTE Band 20 (800).The LTE Blaze Sim Card will not automatically work in all mobile Handsets except those compatible.  

 

Once the Blaze sim card is inserted into a modem or router, it gives clients the opportunity to connect multiple other devices including mobile phones. It allows connectivity of up to 10 devices on a MiFi modem and up to 32 devices on an indoor modem. This brings convenience to clients who may wish to share internet connectivity with friends, family or colleagues.  

 

The service has been launched in Harare at eight different areas and their peripheries, giving excellent service including during electricity load shedding times.  

 

The eight areas where the service is available are listed below;

• Avondale

• Kuwadzana

• Borrowdale

• Harare Main(CBD)

• Ruwa  

• Glenview

• Chitungwiza

TelOne is pleased to advise its clients that work is currently in progress to extend the service countrywide.
