The Chief Commercial Officer of Airtel Uganda, Amit Kapur says Africell customers will not only have a chance to get a number close to their preferred number range – based on availability but they will also get 50% bonus data on all weekly and monthly bundles. This will go on until the 15th November 2021.
“For continuity and a seamless transition, we are welcoming former Africell customers with exciting offers. The former Africell customers will be connected onto the quality services offered by Airtel Uganda across the country guaranteeing them wide coverage, high speed internet, 3G/4G network, affordable Airtel Money services, affordable packages, roaming and international services as well as all value added services,” Kapur said.
Existing Airtel customers who switch their Africell data simcards to Airtel network will qualify to have their data doubled for the next three months.
Africell had over 3 million subscribers after being in business for seven years. Africell took over Orange telecom several years ago.
However, without giving specific reasons, Africell announced it’s exit saying it’s for the good of Uganda Telecom companies in general.
“Africell-UG will stop services on October 7, 2021. The decision is being made in the long term interest of the Ugandan telecom sector. We believe that the opportunity to achieve this impact is increasingly limited. We have therefore taken the difficult decision to permanently end Africell UG’s operations in Uganda.”
