Warid Telecom launches today

9 Jan 2008

Warid Telecom will today become Uganda’s fourth wireless network operator, launching services in the capital Kampala and other major cities. Warid was awarded Public Infrastructure Provision (PIP) and Public Service Provision (PSP) licences in December 2006. On receipt of its licence it immediately announced plans to roll out a GSM-based network, adding that it would invest USD200 million in its network to give it capacity for 1.5 million subscribers and coverage of 70% of the population. Warid Telecom Uganda is wholly owned by UAE-based Warid Telecom International, a subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi Group.
