DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 17, 2018--The “Uganda - Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband - Statistics and Analyses” country profile has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Ugandan Government Sells Majority Stake in Uganda Telecom

This report provides a comprehensive overview of trends and developments in Uganda’s telecommunications market. The report analyses the fixed-line, mobile and broadband sectors.

Reforms within the telecom sector in Uganda have provided the country with one of the most competitive markets in the region. The entry of MTN Uganda as the second national operator to compete with Uganda Telecom in all telecom sectors revolutionised the availability and quality of services.

A simplified and converged licensing regime has significantly reduced barriers to market entry, increased competition, and helped to reduce service costs for consumers. New licence obligations enforced in late 2018 will also ensure national internet coverage during 2019.
