Home to the famed Mt. Kilimanjaro, the United Republic of Tanzania is located in East Africa in the African Great Lakes region. Tanzania is bordered by Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, Burundi, Zambia, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Mozambique, Malawi, and the Indian Ocean.
Once known as German East Africa and then later coming under British rule following World War I, the areas formerly known as Tanganyika and Zanzibar gained their independence in the late 1960s and came together to become the United Republic of Tanzania. Tanzania was under one-party rule up until 1995. Subsequent elections have been controversial, though tensions have eased in recent years.
Today, Tanzania has a population of 51,045,882. The country has been hard hit by HIV/AIDS and has a high death rate and low life expectancy as a result. A 2013 Joint United Nations Program on HIV and AIDS report reveals hope, concluding that AIDS deaths and new HIV infections have decreased 33 and 36 percent respectively and a 67 percent decrease in new HIV infections among children.
Tanzania is the most linguistically diverse country in Africa with more than 100 languages spoken. The official languages of Tanzania are Swahili and English.
Tanzania is one of the world’s poorest countries with high poverty levels and extreme hunger and malnutrition. Agriculture makes up about a quarter of the country’s GDP and employs 80 percent of the workforce. About 85 percent of Tanzania’s exports are agricultural products.
Tanzania’s economy is largely market based. However, the telecommunications, mining, energy and banking sectors continue to have a government presence.
The banking sector in Tanzania is growing rapidly, with foreign-owned banks owning nearly half of all financial assets and providing robust competition for financial services.
Tourism is another important economic driver in Tanzania, making up about 12.7 percent of its GDP. Popular tourist destinations in Tanzania include Mt. Kilimanjaro, Serengeti National Park, Lake Manyara National Park, Tarangire National Park and Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
Telecommunications in Tanzania
Like most sub-Saharan Africa countries, Tanzania has a very low fixed line telephone density (about one fixed line telephone for every 100 people). In 2014, there were just 150,000 fixed line telephones in Tanzania.
That number is eclipsed by the number of mobile cellular subscribers in Tanzania — 31.9 million in 2014, for a mobile telephone density of 64 mobile phones for every 100 people.
According to CIA World Factbook, Tanzania’s telecommunications system operates below capacity, offering marginal telecommunications services. It is being modernized, however. Currently it consists of trunk service provided by open-wire, tropospheric scatter, microwave radio relay, and fiber-optic cable. Tanzania serves as a landing point for the EASSy submarine cable system. It has two satellite earth stations.
According to Budde.com.au, there are two fixed line operators and eight mobile operators (with several more in the works) in Tanzania. The Internet sector is benefiting from 3G, 4G, and wireless broadband services along with the liberalization of VoIP telephony.
In 2014, roughly 15 percent of Tanzania’s population, or 7.4 million people, were Internet users.
