Unfortunately, not all Ugandans can enjoy the Zuku fast fiber internet speeds. There are still factors limiting total coverage.

However, the fiber optical cables have been passed through most of the urban areas around Kampala.

If you live in the areas of Naguru, Kololo, Bukoto, Ntinda, Kyambogo, Bugolobi, Mbuya, Mutungo, Mbuya, and Luzira, then you should be among those that are enjoying the Zuku internet package plans. More areas are still on the “COMING SOON” list.
