This month, MTN Uganda is offering FREE 4G SIM cards to all MTN customers with 4G enabled devices whether smartphones, tables, dongles or routers. MTN customers can now exchange their old cards with a 4G SIM card at any MTN Service Centre across Uganda. The objective of this exercise is to ensure that MTN data customers have the best Internet experience during downloads and uploads or during buffering of audio and video files. 4G LTE technology has the potential to operate at speeds of up to 100mbps, which is almost triple the speed of any existing mobile connection available commercially in Uganda, and the wider region.
In addition to the FREE SIM swaps, all customers who exchanges their old cards for the 4G SIM cards and also each get a FREE 1GB data bundle. The resultant positive experience of customers using the Internet on MTN Uganda’s 4G network is intended to and will certainly lead to an increased use of Internet and further drive data penetration across the country. MTN’s 4G LTE network covers all major towns in Uganda including Kampala, Entebbe, Mbale, Mbarara, Lira, Arua, Gulu, Kabale, Kasese, Fort Portal, Moroto, Masaka and Jinja.
