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. The incumbent telco in recent years has fallen victim to corruption and mismanagement, with the result that it failed to provide the services which customers wanted and was unable to compete effectively. The main shareholder LAP Green also consistently failed to make the necessary investments in networks and infrastructure. Uganda Telecom went into receivership in early 2017, and the government reasserted control of the company. In late 2018 a majority share in the operator was sold to Teleology Holdings.

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.

Uganda’s mobile market has long been overcrowded, which has encouraged some market consolidation over the years (including the sale of Orange Uganda to Africell Holding in mid-2014). It has also resulted in some casualties (including K2 Telecom and Vodafone Uganda, which both struggled to compete).

Key Developments:

  • National Broadband Infrastructure project leading to a dramatic reduction in broadband access cost
  • Government sells a majority stake in Uganda Telecom to Teleology Holdings
  • SIM card registration leads to a large drop in subscriber numbers
  • Vodafone Uganda files for bankruptcy protection
  • Ericsson deploys its Converged Wallet platform for MTN Uganda
  • Google considers Project Look for Uganda
  • Government commissions broadband satellite services for remote areas
  • Regulator enforces national mobile broadband coverage obligations on mobile service licensees
  • Report update includes the regulator’s market data to June 2018, operator data to Q3 2018, recent market developments
