Roke Telkom and Facebook partner to launch Express Wi-fi in Uganda to boost Internet access

According to a news report, Facebook has partnered with Roke Telkom to launch its Express Wi-fi and other high speed Internet services in Uganda at affordable rates. The service which has been launched at a time when access to the Internet has become a necessity for remote learning and remote work purposes, comes with a user-friendly app that allows users to purchase and manage their usage. The Express Wi-fi initiative was launched by Facebook five years ago which has grown to several African countries through strategic partnerships with local Internet service providers (ISPs). The service provides a flexible means for schools, homes, and other organisations to access the Internet.
