Internet penetration

The latest  Uganda Communications Commission  market intelligence report released in August indicated that that the cost of data in Uganda has continued to go down with the amount spent on data going down by over shs200 from shs4980 last year to shs4748 this year.

According to MultiChoice Uganda officials, this means more people are now using internet and would want to enjoy their favourite tv programs from wherever they are on their phones, tablets, computers or other mobile devices.

“It means internet  is becoming very relevant for our customers and therefore there is no right time like this to introduce this innovation. Customers can now watch the premier league on GOtv , favourite channels and everything on their smartphones, tables and other devices wherever they are. You only need to have an active internet connection and update GOtv subscription,” Jamugisa said.
