utl simplifies East African roaming
UGANDA telecom (utl) has introduced a service which allows East African roaming clients to load airtime using vouchers of telecom firms in the countries they are visiting.
According to a statement, the service is dubbed Prepaid Roaming Top Up.
“This service allows subscribers to conveniently top up pre-paid accounts by using vouchers from a partner network operator the same way they do at home. For example, a subscriber roaming in Kenya can use a recharge voucher of Safaricom,” Levi Nyakundi, the utl marketing manager, said.
“Prepaid roaming builds onto utl’s borderless network with Safaricom in Kenya, Vodacom in Tanzania and U-COM in Burundi,” he said.
Subscribers will receive calls for free and make calls at home rates. It also allows clients to share airtime with friends and family.
