Airtel has slashed its calling rates across all networks in a bid to win more customers onto its network. The telecom company has reduced its flat rate to Shs 3 per second across the board from Shs 4.

A statement from Airtel notes,  “the new tariff is for prepaid customers as postpaid customers already enjoy Shs 3 per second across all networks.”

According to V.G Somasekha, the Airtel Uganda managing director, Airtel is committed to serving customers with quality network at the most affordable rates.

“We always commit to affordability and simplicity in our operations. When you make any call, from anywhere at any time, you are guaranteed to spend only Shs 3 per second. A minute is as low as Shs 180 across all networks,” he said.

Airtel currently boasts of 1,632 sites and over 3,900 kilometers of fiber across Uganda covering 95.9% population, according to a statement from the company.
