Broadband subscriptions up in Uganda

01 February 2023

The number of broadband subscriptions in Uganda now stands at 23.7 million after 232,000 were added between April and June 2022.

The Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) said that based on a year-on-year comparison, the 12 months ended June 2022 recorded 1.9 million new broadband subscriptions, representing 8% year-on-year growth.

The UCC said the 23.7 million broadband subscriptions translates into a broadband penetration of 55 internet connections for every 100 Ugandans. This also signifies an increase in demand for smartphones. The UCC expects a significant increase in competition within broadband service delivery and anticipates a decrease in the cost of internet services.
