Vodacom Tanzania To Expand Network

News: Vodacom Tanzania, the Tanzanian unit of South Africa-based mobile operator Vodacom, plans to invest TZS200bn (US$124mn) in network expansion, data and M-PESA (mobile phone cash transfer service) reports Reuters. The expansion is scheduled to take place in 2013. However, the government's introduction of a TZS1,000 (US$ 0.62) tax monthly on every SIM card and an excise duty of 0.15% on money transfers, may affect investment, claim mobile phone operators.
