Telecoms

Celtel Uganda has set up microwave link between Uganda and Tanzania to further improve communication. The link with Tanzania Telecommunications Company Ltd will enhance clarity of calls between Celtel and other operators in the region.

" Prior to this link, if one wanted to call Kenya or Tanzania it would be routed first to a satellite, either in Europe or America and back to the intended destination. However, with this latest innovation, a call would go directly to its intended destination without the hassle of satellite", said Thomas Jonell, Celtel’s parent company Group Director of Operations.
