September 23, 2021by myles0

The Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) has agreed to award an extra 5MHz of wireless spectrum in the 1800MHz and 2100MHz bands to the country’s largest cellular operator MTN. The firm says it needs the additional frequencies to increase its network capacity and improve quality of service (QoS). The award is conditional on MTN upgrading its entire network to achieve average street-level download speeds of 8Mbps within 18 months and to offer roaming on a national level to rival operators within six months.
