  East Africans pay taxes of between 25% and 30% on mobile phone services, compared with an average of 17% across Africa. If the governments in Uganda, Tanzania and Kenya were to cut mobile taxes today, a study found that their total tax receipts would actually rise in the medium to long term. The study reasons that a cut in mobile services taxes would lead to a reduction in tariffs, which would then boost usage of mobile services.
