Kampala Dwellers Rubbish ‘free Wi-Fi’ in the city
By Serestino Tusingwire
Residents of Kampala city have reacted to the government’s free Wi-Fi, saying they have not seen anything like free Wi-Fi internet since October 1 as the government had promised.
The government through National Information Technology Authority (NITA) said that residents around Kampala would start enjoying free Wireless internet with effect from October 1, 2016.
Yesterday, Red Pepper Uganda posed a question on her official Facebook page in a bid to know how effective is the wireless internet after receiving complaints that it was a hoax.
Many people expressed their anger to the government for promising ‘air’ most of the times.
They say they have not seen any signs of the called free wireless internet while others say it is good for nothing since it’s so weak to load any content.
See the Reactions;
Prince Ismael If they have failed to put drugs in the hospitals, provide genuine free education, do you think they can give free Wi-Fi. Yet they have even failed to fulfill their promises, like the sanitary pads.
Ugandans can afford Wi-Fi, what they need is good infrastructures, market for their goods, drugs in hospitals reduced taxes, employment opportunities. That is all.
