This follows the introduction of a new regulatory regime, Mwaghazi Mwachof, Celtel international vice-president for operations, said.

He said the regulatory environment in the world is changing in favour of open licenses to provide best services and products.

“Uganda is moving in that direction and we are happy to see this forward-looking policy,” he said.

Mwachof said when Celtel first came to Uganda, it was licensed to provide mobile services but with advancement in technology, it is ready to move with the new regulatory environment.

“Our plan is to ensure that Uganda has the same technology like countries in Europe and Asia. It’s important that we have the same technology to compete globally.

We have to facilitate development and give people the means by which they can compete,” he said.

Uganda was the first African country to get Celtel services.

“So we have an emotional attachment to Uganda. As we move into the new regime, it’s our hope that it will create a level playing field which will attract investment in the sector,” he said.
