Late year Airtel launched it’s 3.75GB mobile internet offer and it took the Techie Community by storm. The Airtel Uganda internet promotion provides fast and cheap internet compared to other internet providers. In their continued bid to drive mobile Internet penetration, usage, acquisitions and revenues, Airtel Uganda has come up with another exciting promotion for its customers. “Buy a Data Bundle and Get 50% Bonus” Volume for the same price for the same period.
So what does this mean to a tech developer using internet to code away and find relevant information online?
Internet is required to download software resources, so if the Internet is fast and cheap plus in abundance you are able to download a number of softwares to try out than just being limited to less data and pocket change says our in house Web developer Frank.
Because most technology Startups rely mostly on reading online to acquire more knowledge on what they are developing, this Airtel Bonus offer comes in handy. Most innovators read online books, magazines, do research and get to know about tech conference, these all need internet which is fast and cheap. Plus the faster and abundance of the internet the easier to download big files in less time with less money. Am going to enjoy the 1.5GB per day for 10,000 Ugx, that is a great offer for uploading content on our website says David, our in-house Editor
Onyait Odeke says;
As a startup there is always not enough money for most things like the most needed internet but this offer from Airtel makes it easier on the finances. Cheap internet helps Tech Startups spend less money. With the above I think this offer will be welcomed by many including but not limited to Tech Startups, Bloggers, Developers and Innovators.
