According to John Ndego, CEO Vodafone Uganda, expanding the network into the Mukono and Seeta areas does not only align with the brand ethos and vision, but is also a critical pillar in the strategy to optimize the Vodafone network. The telecom is steadily extending exciting opportunities for unmatched online experiences, interactions, networking and knowledge sharing, especially for the youth and SMEs.

The 4G technology guarantees ease in communication to steer the region to its full economic potential. Uganda’s unemployment rate is currently estimated at 4.55% and can be fairly reduced via connectivity by providing ease in accessibility to transformational information. The Government has fully supported initiatives such as innovative hubs that allow young people and Small Medium Enterprises with vast talent and creativity to create amazing employment solutions.

Vodafone believes that they have the network and the customer has the power. So they are making the network coverage accessible to many people, so that they can be empowered to live their best life today. It is with this that they plan on further expansion and consolidation of the network to serve customers better and reach new customers.
