WELCOME to Shared Networks Tanzania Ltd.
Shared Networks Tanzania Ltd (SNT, earlier known as Rural Netco Ltd) operates commercially a high-speed mobile broadband network based on a wholesale business model. SNT provides capacity to the other Mobile Operators in Tanzania who can roam on SNT’s radio network in underserviced areas, which would be commercially unviable to cover by a single operator. This Active Sharing business concept helps to bridge, in a concrete and affordable manner, the digital divide between urban and rural areas and between rich and poor.
In an industry where capital and operational expenditure are increasing, average revenue per user (ARPU) is decreasing and competition is growing, the simple idea of SNT is to reduce cost, help the Mobile Operators increase their ARPU by the provisioning of high-speed data services and provide a stable, reliable high quality network to underpin the Mobile Operators’ services to the end user.
SNT’s service is based on the GSM Association’s 3G UMTS 900 3GPP-standard. The business concept also caters to reuse and share already deployed, underutilized infrastructure and resources adding a new revenue source to the mobile telecom industry in the country.
SNT’s business concept is no doubt universal. Through the Tanzania experience SNT has developed the necessary intellectual property, skills and expertise to expand the concept and to contribute to the positive development of other emerging countries.
