Prior to 1996, Uganda’s communications infrastructure was among the least developed, not only in Africa, but also in the whole world.

For example, at the end of 1996 Uganda had 45,145 fixed lines which translate in a tele-density of 0.21 per hundred people, while in respect of postal services, the per capita number of letters posted was 0.55 in the same year. Both figures are way below the average when compared with other economies in the world.
