MTN Uganda has zero rated a number of Universities online learning platforms allowing students and lecturers free access to study at home during this period of the COVID 19 lockdown.
No data charges will apply to a listed number of educational websites as students and lecturers will be able to use for learning and teaching purposes while at home.
According to the statement released; “the gesture is part of the initiatives that MTN Uganda has put in place during the lockdown to make the lives of her communities a bit easier.”
Makerere University Vice Chancellor Prof Barnabas Nawangwe praised the telecommunications giant for the incentive.
“Our negotiations with MTN Uganda yielded a lot of fruit as the telecom company has accepted to zero rate six of our online learning platforms. We applaud them for this. I now urge our students and lectures to take advantage of this opportunity,” he said.
