Find Telecommunication expertise in Uganda

A survey of telecoms in Uganda shows that there are 5 main telephone lines, 270 mobile phone subscribers and 79 internet users for every 1,000 people (2008).

The Uganda Communications Act 1997 was passed in order to open the telecoms sector up to private investment. Prior to this, poor infrastructure held back sector-wide development and investment.

Following the liberalisation of the telecoms sector, private company Mobile Telephone Networks (MTN) and Uganda Telecom Limited (UTL) became the national telecom operators providing a range of telecom services, including fixed telephony and mobile phone services, as well as internet and broadband. Zain Uganda is a leading provider of mobile phone services. The main internet service providers are MTN, UTL, Infocom, Africa Online and Datanet.
