Mobile voice will continue to be the largest revenue generator, contributing 68.0% to overall revenue in 2015. The top two operators, MTN and Airtel, will account for 88.9% of overall service revenue in 2015. 2G will be the most dominant technology in 2015, accounting for 78.7% of subscriptions.

Mobile services will continue to dominate the market, accounting for 92% of total service revenue in 2020. Data will increasingly contribute to total revenue, generating more than half of telecom revenue in 2020.

Key Findings
- The telecom market in Uganda is expected to generate service revenue of $1.1bn in 2015, a 2.4% increase from 2014, driven by growth in mobile services revenue. Total market revenue will grow at a CAGR of 8.9% during the forecast period.
- Mobile voice will be the largest revenue contributing segment, accounting for 68.0% of total revenue in 2015 and will grow at a CAGR of 1.7% during 2015-2020.
