    Internet service providers in Tanzania have been advised to encourage more people to join the services, to beef up the number of Tanzanians. Currently the country has the least population of subscribers in the region, according to a study carried out in the East African Community.

    Done by TNS Research International in Nairobi, Mombasa and Kisumu from September to November last year, it shows that out of the country's population of 40 million, about 4 million (10 per cent) have access to the internet.

    The study, titled Digital Life and conducted to establish people's online behaviour and activities, found that in Uganda, out of 33 million people, about 3.3 million (10 percent) have access to the internet, while Tanzania comes last. Out a population of 42 million, only 672,000 people (1.6 per cent) have had an online experience, according to the study.

    The study found that based on an adult sample in each of the covered EAC towns, an average of 45 per cent of the urban population have used the internet, with Kampala having the highest number at 53 per cent, Arusha and Nairobi at 49 per cent, Mombasa at 42 per cent, while Dar es Salaam, at 31 per cent, has the least number of people using the Internet.

    Speaking in an interview with The Guardian in Dar es Salaam yesterday, telecommunication stakeholders Cristantus Mwailafu said:

    "We have to increase the number by encouraging more people to learn and use the internet which is very important in modern day development."
    He said Tanzanian has joined the submarine cable which is fast and can be easily used.

    Mwailafu, who also owns an internet café at Kariakoo, in the city urged students in higher learning institutions to create the culture of using the internet.

    "The internet has a lot of useful information to students, they have to use it properly for the development of curriculum," he added.

    A member of Tanzania Internet Services Providers Association (TISPA), Jabir Salum, said the primary objective of the association is to ensure that the local internet traffic is kept local and promotes production of local contents.

    He said the objectives are achieved through encouraging clients, other large institutions and local services providers to have their networks directly connected to each other via the internet exchange points (IXP) across the country.

    "By doing so we hope to improve the quality of services to the consumers and make them affordable and accessible to everyone," he noted.

    Wangetumia absolute figure na sio relative figure ndo tungejua mji upi unawatumiaji wengi wa internet, mbona kwa nchi wametumia absolute halafu kwa miji wametumia relative.

    Huo utafiti haujakaa sawa, ukichukua 31% ya watumiaji wa DSM ambayo inakadiriwa kuwa na wakazi zaidi ya milioni nne hapo ni watumiaji wa internet zaidi ya milion moja kwa DSM pekee, Arusha nayo tuseme ina wakazi laki sita, 49% ni karibia laki tatu, bado Mwanza, Mbeya, Dodoma na miji mingine halafu wanakwambia watumiaji hawafiki milion, kweli kuna utafiti hapo.

    Wanasema kama hujafanya utafiti huna haki ya kuongea lakini taarifa zao za utafiti unaweza kuzifanyia upembuzi yakinifu na kuona kama utafiti huo ni sawa au la.

    Nadhani uko sawa kabisa mkuu. Statistically haiwezekani DAR ikawa na internet users wachache kuliko Arusha. Impossible unless waseme Arusha kuna 'ghosts' users!

    haijalishi cha dar wala Arusha wala loliondo..
    msitarajie kuwa na watumiaji wengi wakati elimu yenyewe ni kama tangazo la haki elimu.. na gharama za huduma juu... licha ya ahadi tam tam za teknlojia ya mkongo(sijui mkonga)...
