SBA Communications is doing business in this market as Minara Tanzania.

Minara holds a National Facilities License and owns and operates more than 1,500 sites throughout Tanzania, with more sites being added monthly, as we continue to support both the mobile operators, the Regulator (TCRA) and the Universal Service Access Fund (UCSAF) in providing broadband connectivity to all parts of Tanzania.

The team provides a fully hosted colocation service, which includes the provision of power for the mobile operators. Minara has invested significantly to connect previously off grid sites to the grid, and support the reduction in GHGs and de-carbonization, as we rely less on diesel generators as either primary or secondary power solutions.

Minara is investing significantly in the development of new site locations, both in currently digitally unserved rural areas, and also in high call or data usage areas, so the mobile operators can offer broadband connectivity to everyone in Tanzania.
