Smile to Launch Voice Over LTE

Smile Communications is set to launch its new product, voice over LTE, in mid 2015.

Nancy Muttu, the senior manager, Marketing, Smile Communications, said the product would offer customers a new experience. She was speaking during an event held at the Bukoto offices recently to award winners of the end of year promotion dubbed Win an iPad.

Muttu said Smile was set to become the broadband service provider of choice for every Ugandan after the launch of the new product. She said the product would offer better quality internet calls.

“We are committed to continuously develop relevant products and services for our customers,” she said.

Smile launched 4G LTE network in Kampala in June 2013 and has since expanded to areas such as Mukono and Entebbe, with plans of extending to other major towns across the country. During the promotion, a total of seven Apple Air iPads and seven Mini iPads were given out over a period of seven weeks.

“Our customers are key to the success of Smile. Today we are recognizing them for that important role. We shall not relent in showing appreciation to our customers,” Muttu said.

Following feedback from their clients, another campaign SmileOn was rolled out in September to allow customers to stay connected to selected sites even when their data runs out. The sites include Social Media, government sites, Skype, Email and news sites among others.
