Abstract [en]

One of the reasons for lack or limited ICT infrastructures in rural areas in developing countries in general and Tanzania in particular, is the lack of strategies to implement already established policies, regulations and legislations that support roll-out of such ICT infrastructures in rural areas. In addition, high cost of connectivity, lack of energy, low ICT literacy and shortage of local contents also contribute to the lack of ICT infrastructure in the rural areas. Despite the presence of eighteen (18) licensed service providers of network facilities in the communications market in Tanzania, rural areas are still unconnected. Notably, there is a government initiative to build a countrywide terrestrial fiber optic broadband backbone with penetration presence down to the level of district headquarters. This is a commendable initiative; however, areas that are far from district headquarters will still be disadvantaged. The public private peoples partnership (PPPP), is recommended as a sustainable model for rural connectivity. This paper investigates the readiness to deploy the PPPP model for rural broadband connectivity in Tanzania. Furthermore, it recommends implementation strategies to build a sustainable model for rural connectivity in Tanzania by borrowing best practices from existing PPPPs projects for broadband rural connectivity.
