Uganda mobile operators scrap roaming charges

Wednesday 7 January 2015 | 14:40 CET | News
Uganda's mobile operators have introduced lower tariffs for subscribers making calls in Rwanda, Kenya and South Sudan. This was after Uganda implemented the Northern Corridor Summit Heads of State decision that required it to adopt the One Network Area by 02 January, joining Rwanda and Kenya which began implementation in 2014. The One Network Area enables people to make calls across the region free of roaming charges. South Sudan, the fourth member of the partnership, will also soon implement the roaming agreement.
