New Airtel tower aids rural village

19 July 2019

Communities in the Mulaba Village, Sengerema District in Mwanza Region, Tanzania now have communication services thanks to a newly-built communication tower by Airtel Tanzania in partnership with the Universal Communication Services Access Fund (UCSAF).

Albert Richard, chief operating engineer at the UCSAF said that the government has been at the forefront of making sure that telecom companies extend their services to most parts of the country.

“The government through UCSAF commends Airtel for extending quality and affordable communication services especially to rural areas,” he said during the visit of the UCSAF board members to the tower. “I’m so happy that Airtel Tanzania has been very supportive and this communication tower we have visited here today is an example of that. I have learned that the communication serves the entire district of Sengerema and stays connected to the Airtel network.”
