Smile Communications Uganda (Smile) today launched the first true 4G (“fourth-generation”) LTE broadband network in Uganda. Smile has had commercial customers using its 4G LTE services for the past six months and, with the launch, Smile becomes the only operator in Uganda to operate a full, true 4G LTE service.
4G LTE, or ‘fourth-generation long-term evolution’ technology is set to become the global standard in the delivery of mobile data and voice services for at least the next decade, and possibly beyond.

The benefits of 4G LTE lie in the radically improved user experience, which enables ultra-high-speed Internet access, stimulating digital innovation and accelerating broadband penetration. Smile’s network utilises true 4G LTE as its core technology, allowing it to deliver services with unparalleled speed, reliability, quality and ease-of-use, while maintaining competitive pricing. Smile’s all-LTE network transcends many of the inherent technical limitations of existing 3G and 3G+ networks, allowing it to maintain consistent, high-quality services, even with high subscriber and usage volumes.
