TNM will on Saturday take its Smart Data product, E-Wimax to golfers at Gymkhana Club where a full field of 84 players will tee-off on the greens overlooking the Zomba massif.
Head of Region for Southern Region Francis Mwamadi said that TNM visits Gymkhana club for the first time this year.
This follows the successful TNM Malawi Open tournament that was held at Lilongwe Golf Club in April where TNM embarked on a phase to promote its wide range of Smart Data products.
He said Smart Data e-WIMAX is one of the high-speed internet data products that TNM offers under the TNM Business Services unit which the company acquired from Burco Electronic Services.
“Saturday’s tournament gives us an opportunity to showcase our high-speed internet capabilities. TNM now offers Malawians affordable alternative access presented by our combined platform as mobile phone data provider and Internet Services Provider (ISP) rolled into one,” he said.
On the Smart eWIMAX capabilities, Mwamadi said the product offers quality and value for money through wide choice of WIMAX data packages.
“With it, our generation of smart consumers have the liberty to choose from this wide variety of TNM Smart eWiMAX data packages according to their lifestyle. eWiMAX has wireless access coverage of up to about 15 kilometres from the base stations, without line of sight,” he said.
The Region Head said eWIMAX offers high internet speeds and it is able to achieve download speeds of up to 5 Megabits per second for fixed residential service and up to 4 Mbps for mobile users.
Currently TNM offers 2 different types of Smart eWiMAX packages and these are Kwathu for indoor users and Panja services for outdoor surfers.
Mwamadi said TNM is proud to promote e-WIMAX on the golf platform as the sport attracts a wide base of tech-savvy and upwardly mobile data consumers.
“Many of our existing and potential customers are golf enthusiasts and Saturday’s tournament is an opportunity for both sides—smart data and golf— to interact,” he said.
TNM returns to Gymkhana Club after hosting a similar tournament last November.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
