Tanzania: Horus-PTS, Bradda Ink $6M Deal to Increase Broadband Penetration Rate

(Ecofin Agency) - The Tanzanian government wants 85% of its population to have access to broadband by 2025. Currently, the country has 34.04 million internet users and a population of 67.9 million people.

Horus Power and Telecom Solutions, a telecoms company present in 14 African countries, and Bradda, a Tanzanian ISP, have signed a cooperation agreement to accelerate broadband adoption in Tanzania. The two partners will invest $6 million in the project which targets about 50,000 people over the next three years.

“By combining our expertise in optical fiber infrastructure with Bradda's extensive network reach, we aim to bridge the digital divide and empower individuals, businesses, and communities with reliable connectivity,” Horus-PTS wrote on its official Facebook Page.

The new partnership will support efforts by the Tanzanian government to boost access to telecom services, and broadband, in a bid to accelerate Tanzania’s digital transformation. The government aims to bring broadband’s penetration rate to 85% by 2025.

Tanzania has 34.04 million internet users, 64 million mobile phone users, and 83,407 landline users. The country’s telecom regulator, Tanzania Communications Regulatory Authority (TCRA), disclosed the figures in its Q2 2023 report.
