Google Launches Wi-Fi Network In Uganda

The Latest Insights from International Online Marketing

Google has launched a Wi-Fi network in the Ugandan capital of Kampala. The network is free to internet providers, who then charge customers to use the service. The Wi-Fi network is currently up and running in around 120 different locations in the city, and there are plans to expand this to even more locations in the future. This is not the first internet project that Google has run in the country. Earlier this year, it chose the country to be the pilot for its Google Link project, which involved laying fibre optic cables to improve internet access in the country. Only 8.5 million Ugandans currently have access to the internet, equivalent to around 23% of the population.
