Tanzania overview

Rosette with number 1 Leading independent towerco

Tanzania, the largest country in East Africa, is home to some of Africa's most famous national parks and natural attractions. It has a very young population: about two-thirds is under 25.

With population growth forecasted at 3% per annum, and low mobile penetration today of 48%, Tanzania is expected to see annual mobile connections growth of 5% over the next five years.

Today, there are four active mobile operators, with the long-established players of Vodacom, Tigo and Airtel joined by Halotel in 2015.

As the leading independent towerco in this market, we are well positioned to support mobile operators expand their coverage across the country.
