MTN Uganda provides faster internet on 3G+ service

Monday 12 November 2012 | 10:48 CET | News

MTN Uganda has provided an upgraded internet speed of 21.9 Mbps on its 3G+ service. MTN has close to 1 million internet service users and said there is a constant need to improve its infrastructure, services and coverage. This need has seen more than 320 3G+ sites established to improve the customer experience. CMO Ernst Fonternel said the move is another step to improve MTN's data and mobile services. The launch of 3G+ follows the recent start of its Mutundwe-based multi-million dollar data facility and the MTN Business unit.

The company has also expanded its fibre network backbone and built regional switching centres in the East, West, North and Central regions, and has rolled out 78 base transmission sites to new coverage areas. MTN expects to have 2,800 kilometres of fibre infrastructure completed by year-end and this will see 1,100 sites established.
