Ugandan mobile broadband subscriptions rise by 120,000 in Q1

Monday 19 July 2021 | 10:12 CET | News
Mobile broadband mobile subscriptions reached 21.5 million in the first quarter to 31 March with the net addition of 120,000 new subscriptions, says a report by the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC). They did not match the more than 1 million subscriptions posted in the final quarter of 2020 but the rise is noteworthy given the internet and social media restrictions during the period, as well as the traditional network churn that usually follows the end-of-year holidays.
