Halotel is the cheapest and the coolest network service provider in Tanzania. It has the best packages for both call, text and data. Honestly speaking it’s the best to use when you’re inside their coverage area. I said that because it has medium coverage and not widely spread to village areas. It’s just not an old service provider and in future it will almost spread to villages.
Is Halotel a Good Sim Card to Use?
Big Yes! It has very good packages and they are very affordable. Their internet bundle has relatively last longer, it’s actually a good sim card for students due to its low cost services. I know students have high data usage but I can assure you by using this network provider you can get all your online findings with the lowest cost.
Also, for tourist they can use Halotel when visiting Tanzania. Visit shop near airport and grab your sim card for affordable services. You only need to have certified copies of your passport and Visa. If you’re going to stay for more than six months you should have a NIDA ID to complete registration.
NB; Those tourist wish to visit interior part and use internet can opt for Vodacom, Tigo or Airtel due to low coverage of Halotel in rural areas.
