Interoperable peer-to-peer (P2P) mobile money transactions have registered remarkable growth. Since Vodacom joined in Feb 2016, interoperable P2P transactions in Tanzania have grown from being about 5% of total P2P mobile money transactions in both volume and value to being about 28% and 26% of the total P2P mobile money in volume and value respectively. However, the percentage of mobile money subscribers using it and how they use it was not known and is the focus of this study. The objectives of the study were to:
Understand use of interoperable P2P transactions in the Tanzania mobile money market.
Understand the real impact of interoperability on consumers.
