The plea was made during the ongoing Vodacom 3G Roll out Campaign, arguing that training in telecommunications technology is inevitable. Wenselaus Agola , a resident of Mbezi Kimara, Dar es Salaam, said yesterday that Tanzania may lose a lot in technology improvement compared to other African countries, due to lack of knowledge on the subject.
“The world is changing rapidly and we have to be part of this change, without this the future of our country is not certain, Some of us cannot afford going back to school to study technology but the government and telecom firms can support us with some basic knowledge.”
Vodacom Tanzania is the first operator to extend the 3G technology to its customers, having invested over 250bn/- on additional 3G base stations.
A resident of Mtoni kwa Aziz Ally, Mr Jamal Abdallah, warned against the alienation of large groups of people in the country, rural dwellers in particular, due to lack of understanding of the technological developments.
