This research looks into the impact of the National ICT broadband backbone in Tanzania which was launched in July 23rd, 2009. The National ICT broadband backbone has been managed and operated by Tanzania Telecommunications Company Limited since its launch up to now. The research will look on the types of contracts entered between telecommunications operators/ ISPs and Tanzania Telecommunication Company Limited (TTCL) during the lease of the bandwidth. It will also focus on the policies if any and regulations related to the lease of the bandwidth from the National ICT broadband backbone as provided by the Tanzania Communication Regulatory Authority. The researcher will suggest on what to be done and what type of policies to be made so as to act as the guidance between both broadband service providers and customers in leasing of the bandwidth. The researcher will also look on the National ICT broadband backbone present in other countries and compare the type of service from those countries and Tanzania. Policies from other countries will also be compared to policies in Tanzania. If policies in Tanzania do not exist, suggestion on new policies will be given based on the existing policies in other countries with amendments for them to be suitable to be used in Tanzania. The research will discuss on different papers provided by the International Telecommunication Union on the issue and how it guides regulatory authorities of different countries in providing such service in general. Finally the researcher will look into the economic benefits that the National ICT broadband backbone provides in Tanzania and other countries as large. The research will be divided in a total of five chapters which are context of the study, literature review, research methodologies, recommendations, and summary and conclusions.
