Abstract: The purpose of this report is to enable organizations engaged in rural development in Tanzania to make informed decisions on rural connectivity and Internet access. It also aims to demystify the technical issues associated with obtaining connectivity and Internet access, which often confuse lay persons. The report also provides a general inventory of connectivity options and costs. As energy is a major concern for rural connectivity, the second part examines this issue and outlines the potential use and cost of alternative energy sources such as solar power, wind, hydropower and bio-mass.
