As of 30 June 2017, MTN Uganda was the largest telecom company in Uganda, with 11.2 million subscribers. This number has since then risen, with MTN Uganda introducing many incentives and campaigns to capture both the young and old.

It is nearly impossible to make your way on the streets and not land on an MTN poster or advert. MTN Uganda has aggressively branded themselves with strategies targeting both the old (The days of Bosco) and young (MTN Pulse). Without a doubt, this has given MTN Uganda a stamina over its competitors, with its compelling and attractive offers. Many popular events around Uganda have been branded MTN’s yellow, emitting off the fact that MTN Uganda is taking charge of all this.

With all this branding and lucrative offers, MTN Uganda has proved competent in the telecommunications sector, and is indeed worth joining.

Below, I share with you 5 reasons why you should Join MTN Uganda.

Cheap Mobile Money Rates

When the year had begun, MTN Uganda made changes to their Mobile Money rates. This was an increase, which didn’t make most of its customers happy.

MTN Uganda currently has very low charges on Money transfer for MTN to MTN transactions.

For non-MTN transactions, the prices are still fairly low, and moderate as compared to other competitors.

Here is an UPDATED list of MTN Uganda’s transaction rates.
