The connection speed of 4Mbps enabled users to watch live videos without any glitches.
“The connectivity was given to Powertel due to its experience in corporate connectivity solutions and experience in Vsat services having had connected a considerable number of Vsat services in Zimbabwe.
The connectivity by Powertel working through Potraz was a welcome development by the local Rushinga people as they requested the company to consider other local sites such as schools.
The event was graced by the Minister of ICT, Postal and Courier Services Hon Supra Mandiwanzira, Potraz executives and management as well top officials from telecoms and postal companies. Powertel connects Potraz Rushinga community
