Tanzania - Second Telecommunications Project (English)

The current deteriorated state of the Tanzanian telecommunications network and consequent poor quality of all telecommunications services are severe constraints on Tanzanian economic development. This telecommunications project is intended to eliminate these constraints by rehabilitating key parts of the telecommunications network, and to maximize capacity utilization by removing bottlenecks and imbalances. A further objective is the institutional development of TPTC (Tanzanian Posts and Telecommunications Corporation). To this end, the proposed project comprises TPTC's 1986-1990 Investment Program including (a) rehabilitation of local cable networks and subscriber equipment; (b) marginal expansion and replacement of worn out or obsolete switching and transmission equipment; and (c) installation of transit exchanges and a satellite earthstation. The project also provides for (d) upgrading maintenance facilities; (e) upgrading computer facilities and (f) strengthening TPTC's organizational structure and management systems.
