Uganda: Airtel Brings Airtel Zone

Airtel Uganda has introduced another product, Airtel Zone, for customers in northern and mid-western regions of Uganda to enjoy discounts on local calls.

Airtel to Airtel calls will have up to 99% discount while calls to other networks get up to 40% discount.

"Customers will be able to call for much less and save a lot more on local calls than has previously been possible," said Managing Director, V. G. Somasekhar in a statement.

"We appreciate the fact that these regions form a large percentage of the bread basket of Uganda and since communication is a key aspect of business, Airtel is happy to come in and aid where we can."

Airtel recently launched a new partnership with the online journal UGO to avail all her customers with free local content through www.ugo.co.ug. Somasekhar also says there is a 50% bonus on all Airtel Internet packages.
