Does this image look familiar to you? Well, if you live in the Tanzanian countryside, I bet it does. 🙂
If you like online betting and you plan to live in any other place in Tanzania than Dar es Salaam (the only city with proper network coverage), think about it twice!
Honestly, getting online and visiting sports betting websites might be a bigger challenge in most Tanzanian small towns and villages than you think. Mobile broadband can be extremely slow unless you are very close to a Vodacom / AirTel / Tigo tower… and even then, it can be quite a challenge.
It’s no wonder that most sports betting fans in Tanzanian villages prefer to place their bets in traditional high street betting shops, and not online.
Another reason is, obviously, that most of them do not possess a suitable device for mobile betting (and many of them do not even have electricity in their houses, let alone a computer for visiting a website; but that’s a different topic).
What’s your experience with mobile broadband and the availability of sports betting website in the place where you live?
