Summary
A new Country Intelligence Report by Pyramid Research, 'Tanzania: Immense Growth Potential beyond Taxation Hurdles,' examines the mobile and fixed telecommunications sectors in the East African country, both in terms of revenue and technology. It analyzes industry trends based on extensive historical data and Forecasts to 2018. The report also takes into account the effects of regulatory changes and highlights long-term growth opportunities.

Key Findings
