15 Jan 2015

Ugandan cellular operators MTN and Airtel have confirmed that they have implemented the One Network Area arrangement which has removed international roaming costs for calls between Uganda, Kenya and Rwanda. MTN has gone one step further, adding South Sudan to the scheme. As reported by TeleGeography’s CommsUpdate last week, cellcos in Rwanda and Kenya had implemented the scheme last year, acting on a decision by the Northern Corridor Summit Heads of State.
