Communication in Uganda

Internet cafes are readily available in Kampala and even a few upcountry. The fastest LAN connections and Skype telephone headsets and connections are at WebCity Café on Collville Ave across from the Kampala Casino in the city centre. It is about 50 Ush/min. or 30 if you buy a membership.

Otherwise, several telecom companies have just introduced wireless
“hotspots” in May of 2005. Many sites are free now during this demo period.

There are about a dozen sites in Kampala: Grand Imperial Hotel, Fairway Hotel, Blue Mango, Café Pap, Rwenzori Coffee, International Hospital, Infectious Disease Institute (IDI) at Mulago Hospital to name a few. Fax services are also available but quite expensive to
fax international. Main postal office in Kampala is on Kampala Road by city square.
