Technology for mobile currently in use in Tanzania is 2.5G succeeding to 2G ones.

2G was first introduced in 1992, is the second-generation of cellular telephone technology and the first to use digital encryption of conversations. 2G networks were the first to offer data services and SMS text messaging, but their data transfer rates are lower than those of their successors.

3G will be officially up and running in Tanzania when the third mobile Operator (Viettel) will start it's activities in the begining of 2014.
