TANZANIA SIM CARD COMPARED AND PREPAID SIM CARD IN TANZANIA BACKGROUND

First thing we have to say about Tanzania prepaid sim card and data connection in Tanzania is fine in the big cities. Unless you go to the National Parks or any place far from the cities. There are 5 phone operators in Tanzania: Vodacom, Tigo, Airtel, Halotel and Zante..

Obviously the best thing you can do to connect online is buying a prepaid sim card in Tanzania. It will be efficient and it will allow you to connect anytime.

We recommend you to buy a Tanzania sim card outside the airport because prices and packages are better in the official stores.

Sometimes is hard to connect your laptop to the VPN and you have to be patient. If you go for a week you will find VPN with free trials. We used Atlas VPN, ExpressVPN, NordVPN, Surfshark and Proton VPN. When connecting the VPN to your device will make it slower than usual.
