Reliable ICT services reduce the influence of geographical obstacles in bringing people together, and improve social-economic development in any country. However in Tanzania, ICT services are limited because Tanzania doesn't have its own ICT backbone infrastructure. In order to close the digital divide with other countries and enhance sustainable socio-economic development and accelerate poverty reduction in the country, Tanzania must construct a high capacity internationally connected terrestrial ICT backbone. This can be achieved using optical DWDM network technology, which can provide virtually unlimited bandwidth with minimum costs, for all ranges of ICT services such as Internet, voice, videos and other multimedia interactions.
