We previously looked at the licensed Public Infrastructure Providers (PIP) in Uganda today, we look in-depth at the Public Service Providers (PSP). A PSP license is given by the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) to those that want to provide public telecommunications services, there are the following licenses: Voice and Data PSP license and Capacity Resale PSP license. Public Service Provider (PSP) – Voice and Data is issued to persons that offer voice telephony services (operated like public switched telephony services whether fixed or mobile) and data services. This includes Internet Access Services or Internet Service providers.
Public Service Provider (PSP) – Capacity Resale is issued to persons buying capacity from operators and reselling this to others, re-branded or otherwise. This may take on the form of international termination and calling cards. This however does not include the leasing of infrastructure facilities by a PSP to distribute the PSP’s services to its customers. This excludes any person running public pay phone services, fax bureau, and/or Internet café/cyber café would fall under the public pay communications services category. Also those nerds that are setting up services for only their own use, you fall in the private network category these whose are covered in the General authorization category of licensing which is also provided by UCC. These are the 24 companies that have been licensed by UCC to operate as Public Service Providers in Uganda.
