Tourism, trade and industry minister, Prof. Edward Rugumayo, has hailed Celtel Uganda for offering an alternative billing system in seconds rather than minutes
â€˜Rate Championâ€™ ensures that the customer is billed for only that time one spends talking unlike the minute based system.
Rugumayo was on Friday officially opening Celtelâ€™s main Fort Portal outlet. He commended the firmâ€™s acceptance of helping to make telecommunication services more accessible and affordable.
There are presently three mobile networks operating in Uganda. Rugumayo said competition should stimulate the companies to improve services and appealed to people to exploit the new technology for development.
Celtel spokesman George Mutagubya showed the minister around.
