UCC says telcos should prepare for new roaming scheme

23 Sep 2014

The head of the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) has said the country is now ready to implement the new ‘One Network Area’ directive, which aims to lower international roaming charges between Uganda, Kenya and Rwanda. Godfrey Mutabazi is calling on Ugandan operators to renegotiate their roaming deals with partners in Kenya and Rwanda to take into account the new peak termination rate of USD0.10 which is due to come into effect on 1 October. South Sudan is also set to join the initiative later this year, while Tanzania and Burundi are also considering signing up.
