Cybernet has been around for a while now and used to be the biggest provider for Broadband in the Arusha area. In principle, Cybernet has the hardware and technical know-how to provide a good Internet service, but oversubscribes their hardware access, leading to slower speeds than many customers are led to believe that they will receive, and inconsistency in service. As an example, hardware that is capable of providing a 10Mbps download speed often delivers just 0.15 - 0.19 Mbps. If looking to rely on their service for work-related use, customers will therefore need to think carefully about whether or not a shared bandwidth package will be satisfactory.
Dedicated Bandwidth | Excellent Speeds & Reliability
If money is no object however, and one has a nostalgic loyalty to the brand, Cybernet's dedicated bandwidth packages are recommended as offering excellent speed and reliability. They are however, typically 650% more expensive than Raha's equivalent packages, so are not usually recommended except where Raha do not have coverage, or where the customer requires unlimited data usage.
