The digital revolution in Uganda poses positive indicators as a platform for achieving the goals of universal inclusion, sustainable development, economic progress and poverty eradication through digital innovation. Uganda has made significant strides in creating an environment that enables ICT adoption and utilisation. This has resulted in increased mobile phone usage, internet penetration and use of information and communication technologies.
However, Uganda still performs poorly on global ICT indicators occasioned by poor and inadequate ICT infrastructure and low levels of internet penetration. The report therefore recommends reforms in the ICT sector including making the access to ICT services affordable for the underserved areas.
