Uganda’s Warid Telecom, a mobile telecommunications company, has concluded an agreement with Huawei Technologies, a global telecommunications solutions provider in an effort to expand and upgrade its network in the country.
“As a growing network, there is need to quickly adapt to new technological advances in order to serve our subscribers with both quality and modern technology,” says Madhur Taneja, Warid CEO.
Under the new arrangement, Huawei will roll out 3G networks and upgrade Warid’s online charging system.
Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) hopes that the deal will address the high rate of dropped or blocked calls currently experienced by most mobile subscribers.
