Strong macro and demographic trends in Tanzania are expected to continue to drive demand for mobile and telecommunications infrastructure. The population is forecast to exceed 67 million by 2024, from c.60 million in 2020, and 71% of citizens are under 30.
Tanzania has experienced strong mobile subscription CAGR of 8% from 2012-2020, with an expected further 5% CAGR from 2020 to 2026.
Over the last few years, the Government has directed a number of regulatory initiatives designed to promote investment in ICT, broadband infrastructure and network service quality.
There are four active mobile operators, with the long-established players of Vodacom, Tigo and Airtel joined by Halotel in 2015. MNOs continue to see potential and to invest, with 4G spectrum auctions in 2018 likely to drive the need for more PoS.
Helios Towers is the sole independent towerco and has 66% market share. We entered the market in 2011 and have completed four tower transactions. Build-to-suits comprise roughly a third of our tower sites in the country. Our sites are also well positioned with 58% in urban areas.
