Local telecommunication devices and airtime solutions provider Simba Telecom has confirmed plans to enhance its market presence and effectiveness by improving its retail distribution capacity.

The Simba Group operating subsidiary, which is also integrated telecommunications firm MTN’s lead distribution partner, is investing about US$1,000,000 in a strategic distribution enhancement programme geared at reaching wider geographical zones and ultimately improve speed to market.

Speaking when she confirmed the strategic plan to facilitate last-mile access, acquisition and delivery of telecommunication products and services, Simba Telecom Chief Executive Officer Flora Kaheru said the firm has invested in human resources to cover key markets in a bid to enhance technology penetration in Uganda. Simba Telecom, she assured, is focusing heavily on removing barriers affecting the acquisition of quality mobile devices and convenient access to MTN Mobile Money Services to boost customer experience.
