MTN Uganda has been offering fiber services for her Business clients but, this website was able to determine that MTN is indeed rolling out the internet fiber service to her Home clients in Uganda.

Tucked away at the bottom of the MyMTN app, under the section of ‘Buy’ users are now able to request for MTN Home Fiber services.

We have determined that Home Fiber services will have an installation fee of UGX 100,000/- and the telecom will offer a standard 10Mbps or Premium 40Mbps package at UGX 179,000/- and UGX 279,000/- per month respectively. All payments will be paid via mobile money.

MTN says that it will deliver optic fiber directly to your home and will provide a reliable high-speed internet connection with no cap on data volume to enable users to meet their entertainment, education, surveillance and home office needs.

As of writing MTN Home Fiber will be available in parts of the following areas; Kololo, Nakasero Hill, Makerere, Bugolobi, Luzira, Ggaba, Makindye, Muyenga, Namuwongo, Nsambya, Ntinda Bukoto, Ntinda (Kyambogo – Minister’s Village), Ntinda (Kiwatule – Naalya), Kira, Kisaasi, Bweyogerere, Najjankumbi, Entebbe, Mukono, Jinja, Mbale, Arua and Lira.

The application has more detailed locations within the above-selected areas to ensure that users are in the right Fiber zones before requesting for the service. It is unfortunate that the Terms and conditions for usage indicated in the mobile app have nothing to do with the service but rather relate with MyMTN and not the Home Fiber solution.

For now we were unable to gain access to the Fair Usage Policy of MTN’s Home Fiber. Since the service is labelled as ‘Up to 10Mbps’ or ‘Up to 40Mbps’, we still unable to determine where it is a shared 10Mbps link or a dedicated link with both 10 up and down speeds.

We shall be sharing this information and a detailed connection review after in-depth testing of the service.

We are glad that more companies are rolling out fiber connections to their customers as this usually ensure a stable connection. You can let us know whether you are excited about the roll-out of MTN Home Fiber in the comments below.
