Roke Telkom, Facebook partner to launch Express WiFi in Uganda to boost Internet access

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