BMI View: The Tanzanian mobile market rebounded in 2015, as its 2013 performance was negativelyimpacted by sim registration and removal of inactive accounts. Given that penetration is relatively low,there is still room for significant growth. Viettel's entry into the market scheduled for October 2015, with afocus on rural areas will drive growth and competition further. Current operators scramble to match thenew entrant, they look to differentiate themselves with better services. MFS (mobile financial services) willbe one of these, as Tanzania becomes the first fully interoperable country. Mobile data will continue togrow through 3G and 4G networks. The fixed broadband market will see growth, especially as the TTCLlong-term investments begin to bear fruit and the country benefits from TTCL's advanced nation-wide fibreoptic network supported by data centres, three active satellites and two soon to be commissioned satellites.

Key Data

- The mobile sector grew 16.1% in 2014, compared to growth of 0.8% in 2013 following the discountingof inactive subscriptions and a 1.1% growth in Q313.
- Despite increased usage, both in terms of voice and data, ARPU continues to decline through strongcompetition, which will be exacerbated by Viettel's market entry
- MFS users have continued to rise Tanzania has become the first country to offer interoperability acrossall MFS platforms
- The fixed-line market continues to contract, declining by 8.3% y-o-y because of a lack of investment andfixed-to-mobile substitution
