Utande’s Wimax Tariffs

musheMax$1,657.001 MbpsUncapped1 Month
monthlyMax$2,650.002 MbpsUncapped1 Month
skyMax$4,969.003 MbpsUncapped1 Month
  • You will need your own compatible Wimax equipment. You should be able to easily find second hand equipment. However, note that ZOL Greenpacket modems are not compatible with Utande although other old ZOL modems are.
  • From experience there is zero difference between these packages when it comes to speed during the day. Utande suffers from congestion that will see you stuck at 1 Mbps no matter which package you choose.

  • Utande’s Fibre coverage isn’t as wide as ZOL’s coverage

  • Unlike other operators Utande allows you to rent equipment from them instead of paying the entire installation fee
  • VSAT is expensive but useful in areas where there is no Fibre coverage. However, at these prices, you are better off getting 4G and using OneFi and Private WiFi Bundles wherever there is coverage
  • Bonus Time is when you use your internet connection between 00:00 and 06:00
  • VSAT connections also suffer from latency
  • However, they can be useful as a backup as they are not under the thumb of the government. Whenever there is an internet shutdown these connections remain up
