UGANDA Communication Commission (UCC) has waived licence fees for Internet Service-Providers and device installers to promote Information and Communications Technology (ICTs).

Although the above categories will no longer be required to pay licence fees, the device installers must use equipment, which complies with technical guidelines set by UCC.

“Internet Service-Providers without their own International Data Gateway will however be required to adhere to the existing licence procedures and terms including payment of the 1% levy on the gross revenue,” a statement signed by UCC’s managing director, Patrick Masambu, said.

UCC is the regulator of the communications industry. It has several projects and initiatives intended to increase access and use of ICTs.

The statement said the annual licence fees for Internet Access Services with International Data Gateway category has been reduced from $4,000 to $2,000.

“UCC shall continue regulating operators under the above categories,” the statement read.
