King of the Bundles: Africell Uganda introduces over 20 new data bundles

Africell King of Bundles

[blockquote right=”pull-left”] [/blockquote]
As the value of the dollar in Uganda keeps increasing, it seems the reverse is true for the voice and data prices in the telecom sector. The self-branded King of Bundles, Africell Uganda has joined the MTN and Airtel price wars in voice and has reduced its data rates. Ever since the take over from Orange Uganda, the company has been incognito and their data market share has slowly been eaten up by the likes of Vodafone and MTN. So, for Africell it wouldn’t make much sense to cut voice prices but rather concentrate where their strength lies– and that is data. The company showed off these prices at the Kampala Carnival and is yet to update their website to reflect the new data tariffs.

They have introduced 20 new bundles in all categories, 9 existing bundles have been reduced and one 75 MB daily rate bundle has been removed in the new tariff plan. See the table below for details; Do these new rates make Africell Uganda the King of Bundles?  Leave us your comment below.
