MTN Uganda lifts FY number of subscribers to 8.7 mln

Wednesday 5 March 2014 | 10:18 CET | News
MTN Uganda increased its subscriber base by 14.4 percent to 8.8 million in 2013, driven by strong acquisition promotions, segmented offerings and the continued success of MTN Zone. Increased penetration into rural areas and improved network quality further supported this growth. Total revenue increased by 17.9 percent, supported by a 51.7 percent increase in data revenue and a 10.9 percent increase in outgoing voice revenue. SMS revenue declined by 3.5 percent as customers opted for newer data-driven social media platforms for communication.
