|The Uganda Government as an
incentive to the two major licensees agreed to offer duopoly exclusivity period of 5 years
for voice, fax and leased lines, after which those services will be open for full
competition like all the others. There is a wide range of investment opportunities.
For example during the exclusivity period, it is permissible for
parternships with the major Licence holders to offers services in the exclusive category.
Otherwise areas like;
- Data and international date gateways
- Courier services
- Public payphones (using lines from major operators) are
open for full competition
The Commission is very supportive of innovations and
takes time to study application when made. For details on Investment opportunities, you
