Calling all investors

Article - November 30, 2011

Tanzania’s GDP has grown dramatically in recent years sparking a telecoms boom.

Tanzania had almost 21 million subscribers in December 2010, which represented 46.6 per cent penetration, and is expected to reach 70 per cent penetration by 2015.

The Tanzania Communications Regulatory Authority (TCRA) was established under the Tanzania Communication Regulatory Authority Act of 2003. The TCRA regulates communications to increase market competition, and will also facilitate the switch from analogue to digital, and the introduction of a new postcode system.

Professor John Nkoma, director general of TCRA says: “Major successes include managing competition in the communications market, introducing the 2010 Electronic and Postal Communications Act, and the development of the National Information and Communications Technology (ICT) network.”

Professor Nkoma believes that developing the telecommunications network has been vital to Tanzania’s economy and encourages investors to partner with Tanzania so it can further grow its telecoms might and realise its full potential. “As a regulatory body we ensure that licenses are of reasonable duration and regulations are enforceable. We use the funds we receive responsibly – so come and invest in Tanzania’s thriving telecoms industry.”
