CanalBox Uganda, a new broadband internet service provider, has officially launched its services in Uganda after investing Shs50 billion in the past 11 months.

The company offers two fiber optic internet plans, Start (50 Mbps) and Premium (200 Mbps), suitable for basic and heavy internet users respectively.

Priced at Shs110, 000 and Shs200, 000 per month, CanalBox Uganda’s fiber optic internet promises to offer high speeds and reliability, making it ideal for businesses, homes, and schools that require reliable internet access for streaming, video conferencing, and other demanding applications.

Deputy Speaker Thomas Tayebwa praised the entry of CanalBox Uganda, stating, “The entry of such a giant player in Uganda is a vote of confidence in our government and its business-friendly policies, country, and people.” He commended the company’s efforts and looks forward to seeing the impact they will make in growing broadband internet prevalence in Uganda.

Tayebwa added that increasing affordability and access to the internet are crucial components in the government’s deliberate efforts to deepen connectivity in Uganda, and was glad to hear that this is also a priority for GVA’s long-term investments in fiber optic infrastructure.

“The internet has transformed societies in unprecedented ways, shaping the way we live, work, and interact with one another through communication, information dissemination, business transactions, education, and improved service delivery,” Tayebwa said.

He urged the GVA team to become the first company to zero-rate all educational websites, benefiting children in rural Wakiso and beyond.

The entry of such a giant player in Uganda is a vote of confidence in our government and its business friendly policies, country and people.

He also commended GVA for their efforts and the footprint they have made so far and looks forward to seeing the impact they make as they continue to grow the prevalence of broadband internet in Uganda, as they have done in other countries across Africa.

CanalBox Uganda’s fiber optic internet uses light pulses to transmit data, resulting in faster speeds and better reliability than traditional options. This launch is expected to increase broadband internet penetration in Uganda, supporting the country’s digital transformation and economic growth.

With its high-speed and reliable internet services, CanalBox Uganda is poised to revolutionize the internet landscape in Uganda, supporting businesses, education, and innovation.
