Africell stops giving out free SIM cards in Uganda
Thursday 5 December 2019 | 09:41 CET | News
Ugandan operator Africell has joined other telecom operators by starting to sell SIM cards rather than give them out for free, reports The Monitor.
For more than a year, Africell has been giving out free SIMs through street vendors. People have mainly been purchasing Africell SIMs to benefit from its fairly priced data packages, The Monitor said.
Executive director of the Uganda Communications Commission Godfrey Mutabazi said the regulator does not have any problem with Africell stopping the issue of free SIM cards because this is a business model that it has decided to take on.
