Seven out of Tanzania's 27 regions have made the switch from analogue to digital broadcasting during the first phase of implementing the digital migration that started in December 2012, Tanzania's Daily News reported Wednesday (February 12th).

The country is now preparing to start the second phase of the nationwide switch, said John Nikoma, director general of the Tanzania Communications Regulatory Authority at the Digital Broadcasting Switchover Forum in Africa now ongoing in Arusha.

Tanzania's progress in digital migration puts it at the head of the curve regionally, Nikoma said.

Digital migration has been stalled in Kenya, where media companies have requested several delays to the start of the process and a decision on the matter is pending at the High Court.
