The roll out of 115 new coverage sites brings the total number of MTN network sites supporting its network up to 1,220, while the company has also upgraded almost all its network sites in Kampala from 2G to 3G, bringing the total number of 3G locations to more than 400 sites.

"The upgraded sites in Kampala will go along way in supporting businesses and commerce in the Central Business District. MTN Uganda is ahead of target on its roll-out plans and nearly all the planned 406 sites earmarked for upgrade by the end of 2013 have been completed," stated Rami Farah, MTN Uganda CTO.

According to the company, over the last two years it has made major investments to its data infrastructure in Uganda, expanded the mobile distribution foot print, and greatly enhanced the mobile core, radio capacity and network infrastructure.

MTN launched its operations in 1998 offering mobile and fixed telecommunication, mobile money services and internet service provisions.
