Orange launches mobile services in Uganda

15th African country in Orange's international footprint

By CBR Staff Writer

Wireless communications provider Orange has launched its mobile telecommunications services in Uganda. With the launch of GSM network, Uganda becomes the 15th African country in Orange’s international footprint.

The launch of operations by Orange Uganda follows the acquisition by France Telecom of a 53% stake in the Ugandan mobile phone operator, Hits Telecom Uganda in October 2008.

In line with its acquisition strategy, the group will provide the expertise and investment necessary to ensure the development of a network offering nation-wide coverage.

The Orange network will be further expanded, not only in terms of coverage but also in terms of services and technologies. 3G broadband services will also be offered in the next few months, following the planned upgrade of the network, according to the company.

Philippe Luxcey, CEO of Orange Uganda, said: We are very excited to be able to enrich the lives of Ugandans by providing simple, innovative communications products and services, with unrivaled value and a clear focus on customer care. We are also proud to contribute to the economic development of Uganda.
