Viettel/Halotel A Clear Threat To Existing Players
Mobile Subscribers (000) & Net Subscriber Additions (000), October-December 2015

BMI View: Growth in Tanzania's mobile and advanced data segments will be driven by competition as well as increased investment in network expansion by operators. The discounting of inactive SIMs , however - in particular as Halotel enters the market - will see slower growth in some quarters. Furthermore, the continuing fall in the price of mobile devices relative to tablets and laptops will impede substantial growth in wireline broadband. Growth in w ireline voice will also continue a negative trend, as the incumbent TTCL restructures and focuses more on its mobile business.
