Monday, November 23, 2009
Kampala – The seventh mobile operator in Uganda, Smiles Communication, starts operations today, using the 02 code.
Irene Charnley, Smiles’ chief executive officer, yesterday said the firm targets the un-served, bottom of the pyramid consumers in Africa and the Middle East.
“For the first time, individuals are offered free electronic identities and voice message boxes without needing to own a phone,” said Charnley.
Using their telephone number, or Smile ID, together with a secure PIN code, customers can login to any Smile phone, she said.
