For the same prices, data volumes have been increased by an average of over 50% across the different tariff classes to enable users adjust to tough economic times.

In a bid to support customers adjust to the tough economic times, Airtel Uganda has today increased the Data bundles volumes at the same prices. The changes which were on Monday announced at a press conference at their clement hill Head office, are intended to support customers do more e-commerce and reduce the need to move as the impact of fuel scarcity bites.

While addressing the media, the Airtel Uganda Marketing Director, Mr. Henry Njoroge noted that growing access to the internet is a socioeconomic empowerment intervention.

“We believe that the action we have taken today will support our customers to connect with their business partners in the most affordable way. With more than 50% data volumes added across the different data bundles, we are giving customers more value for money and keeping their economic fortunes alive,” said Njoroge.

“In addition, we are bringing 88% more data to our customers who purchase daily 24hour validity bundles. We recognize that most of our people earn a daily income. We are intentional in ensuring that this group of our customers are supported with affordable data to make their business communication. This is the glue that binds Uganda’s small and micro enterprises.

These efforts are complemented by our most affordable 4G  Smartphone currently in our shops across the country. At UGX250,000/= the customer gets the 4G Smartphone that comes with 12 months data worth 86500/= redeemed as 1GB per month” said  Njoroge.

In the weekly data bundle segment, it is the 5000 bundle that got the biggest boost of up to 76% increase in volume from 1.02GB to 1.8GB.
