UTL offers refugees Mango

21 Sep 2005

Uganda Telecom (UTL) has announced that it has connected the entire northern region of the country to its GSM mobile network, beating a government deadline that required it to cover the region by the end of the year. UTL’s northern regional marketing coordinator, James Mutebi, stated that the network, which operates under the Mango brand name, now extends to southern Sudan and northeastern DR Congo, and is the first to provide coverage to internally displaced refugee camps that had previously been tagged ‘impenetrable’ due to security risks.
