Improving Network Speeds In Uganda with AirTel and BCS

Network infrastructure remains a key bottleneck in many markets. Building out infrastructure represents a large portion of a telecom provider’s costs, and can make it difficult to provide users with high-speed connectivity at affordable prices. We invest in infrastructure and platforms to drive down the cost of internet bandwidth. We expect our investments to reduce the costs of delivering data and improve network reliability and speeds, as well as encourage open access infrastructure sharing and competition. Together with Airtel and BCS, we’ve built almost 800km of fiber backhaul in Northwest Uganda. 18 million people lack reliable, high-speed internet in Uganda. Through this build we’ve improved network coverage in Northwest Uganda by 40%.
