Local internet service provider, Liquid Home Zimbabwe has said they have connected over 44 000 users in Zimbabwe turning the country into a regional internet hub.

Minister of Information Communication Technology and Courier Services Jenfan Muswere has applauded Liquid Home Zimbabwe for connecting over 44 000 users these include private homes as well as small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).  

Muswere said this Thursday where internet connectivity giant ZOL Zimbabawe was officially rebranding to Liquid Home Zimbabwe.

Muswere said after 25 years in the business years ZOL has brought services to include LTE, Fibre To The Home, Webhosting, among others in the process empowering many people and homes with reliable online access.

“This rebranding is a massive milestone for Liquid Home, who have already made an immeasurable difference in people’s lives in the three decades they have been here as ZOL. From its humble beginnings as a dial-up service provider back in 1994, ZOL evolved into one of Zimbabwe’s leading internet service providers. ZOL has increased its services over the years to include LTE, Fibre To The Home, Web hosting.

ZOL’s commitment to both its customers and the broader connectivity of the country has established it as one of our tech industry’s household names,” he said.

“The pivotal role ZOL has played in Zimbabwe’s economic growth, and the quality of its people’s lives became even more evident during the last two years when the COVID-19 pandemic struck. Thanks to ZOL for bringing high-speed connectivity to thousands of homes, many businesses could continue their operations remotely, while students were able to continue their studies from home.”

Muswere added has helped Zimbabwe make giant strides that  strides towards fulfilling a smart Zimbabwe master plan anchored on Information Communication Technology (ICT) and the digital economy.

“Government’s key goals as we move the country towards being an upper-middle-income society by 2030 is to ensure Zimbabwe’s digital future is secure. A vital part of this is our National Development Strategy agenda, through which we aim to provide internet access to villages in rural areas by 2030. Our vision of the country’s digital future is one in which we see Zimbabwe as a regional technology hub,” said Muswere adding  Liquid Home is primed to play a crucial part in this regard.

Muswere told guest at the event that Zol continues to invest in network infrastructure and partnerships, delivering world-class services and products to their customers.

“This rebranding will take them to the next level.

” In line with our National Development Strategy Liquid Home has already deployed 258 LTE base stations, some of them in remote rural areas where previously access to the internet was difficult and almost impossible to achieve,”  he said.

“The LTE network has connected over 50,000 people to date and has the capacity to connect over 150,000.

“We share the belief of Liquid Intelligent Technologies, which is the parent company of Liquid Home, that connectivity is transformative and can benefit every person in Africa. As Government, we are fully committed to supporting them in their mission to connect every business and person on the continent, providing fast, reliable networks and world-class products in the cloud, cyber security, access to data centres and services from their global partners. We have already begun to relax barriers to private sector participation allowing for collaborative action and effective state-business relations.”

Government, Muswere said looks forward to working with Liquid Home and other players through our Smart Zimbabwe 2030 Master Plan, building on the victories we have already achieved and moving towards a more connected, economically robust, and influential Zimbabwe.
