This has meant that mobile networks carry most voice traffic and account for the vast majority of internet connections. With recent investment in LTE technologies, the reach and capabilities of mobile broadband services have increased measurably. This has led to a range of social benefits, including the ability of individuals to make use of banking and a range of m-commerce services. Greater internet bandwidth through international cables has also reduced the cost of mobile backhaul, and consequently the end-user cost of such services has fallen steadily. The market remains overcrowded, with several networks in contention, and there is room for further consolidation among operators. In recent years Bharti Airtel took over Warid Telecom and Smart Telecom entered the market, while Orange Uganda decided t exit the market, selling to Lebanon-based Africell Holding. Orange Uganda completed its rebranding as Africell in February 2015. During 2017 Uganda Telecom fell into receivership, and the operator's mobile services may be suspended by the administrator.

Almost 3.7 million SIM cards still not registered by deadline; Smile Communications launches commercial VoLTE service, contracts Ericsson for managed services, launches Smart Pesa m-money service; Vodafone Uganda expands LTE as part of national coverage program; Ericsson deploys its Converged Wallet platform for MTN Uganda; opportunities grow for MVNOs and tower outsourcing companies; regulator reports on QoS assessments; report update includes the regulator's market data to December 2016, operator data to Q2 2017, recent market developments.
