In a bid to remain customer-centric and provide affordable products, Airtel Uganda on 4th July 2019 reduced calling rates across all local networks. The reduced Airtel calling rates apply to prepaid customers.
The rates have been reduced from a flat rate of UGX 4 per second to UGX 3 per second for clients calling to other networks or Airtel to Airtel. The tariff reduction only applies to prepaid customers as postpaid customers already use the Ush 3 per second across all networks.
Airtel Uganda Managing Director Mr. V.G Somasekhar said that “The Smartphone Network” is committed to serving customers with quality network at the most affordable rates.
“We always commit to affordability and simplicity in our operations. When you make any call, from anywhere at any time you are guaranteed to spend only UGX 3 per second. A minute is as low as UGX 180 across all networks,” he said.Airtel Uganda Managing Director Mr V.G Somasekhar
