TelOne (formerly PTC) is the country’s oldest telecoms company. It provides fixed landlines via copper and fibre. They are the only ones that offer ADSL internet although they only offer ADSL2+ with speeds maxing around 4 Mbps depending on distance from the exchange. They also now offer Fixed LTE.
TelOne as actually increased USD prices in September and that moves them closer to ZOL prices on all their services including Fibre.
Telone ADSL and Home Fibre
Home Basic Night
Home Plus Night
Home Premier Night
ADSL has lower upload speeds compared to download speeds i.e. it’s Asymmetric. That shouldn’t be a big deal to the majority of users.
Above packages and prices are also used for home fibre packages. Fibre tends to have higher and more consistent speeds compared to ADSL plus it is offered by TelOne as a symmetric service i.e. upload and download speeds are the same.
TelOne Fibre (Business)
TelOne has Fiber in the following areas:
Avenues and CBD area
Blaze LTE Packages
TelOne’s LTE is currently at capacity, they are not selling any new lines. They have promised new lines will be sold starting this month.
The service is also fixed unlike ZOL’s Wibroniks although there is a rumour Wibroniks will also be fixed
The service has better upload speeds compared to ZOL Wibroniks
