Data VolumePrice (UGX)Validity Period
20GB220,00030 days
40GB330,00030 days
80GB450,00030 days

20GB will go Ugx 220,000 while 80GB is priced at Ugx 450,000. Preciously Vodafone was selling 35GB “unlimited” for a pocket-friendly Ugx 150,000 undoubtedly the best deal in town.  But how does Vodafone’s new pricing stack-up against the rest?

The telecoms have made it hard for us to have a common denominator for data volumes. But if we are to take their price/GB for 20-30GB data tier, Africell and MTN come off with the best value for your money, then followed by Airtel and Vodafone while Smile comes off last.
