Tanzanian ISP Raha issued spectrum usage fine

Tanzania’s regulator has hit Liquid Telecom subsidiary Raha with a TZS11.8 billion (US$5.1 million) fine.

The TCRA (Tanzania Communications Regulatory Authority) has accused the ISP of using spectrum in the 1452MHz-1482MHz band without a valid licence since March this year, according to TeleGeography.

Local newspaper The Citizen reported TCRA director James Kilaba as claiming that despite using the spectrum, Raha had failed to “provide internet services and submit financial statements.”

Raha has been given 90 days to pay the fine for contravening spectrum regulations, or it will be penalised further.
