Uganda Telecom has this year partnered with smart phone makers idroid to offer their customers a range of choice in their portfolio of services. Last week, the idroid simu was being sold at a discounted price.
Earlier this week, idroid and UTL announced a demo sale where phones were also being sold at discounted prices. They also launched an open box sale where their new range of smart phones were available at 40% off retail prices at UTL headquarters in Kampala.
Speaking about the demo sale, UTL Brand Manager Bright Baba said the initiative was in line with the brand’s commitment to provide services that are affordable for their customers.
“UTL has always been the network of choice for the Ugandan customer who wants affordable prices. Our partnership with a brand like idroid cements this commitment because the phones they are selling are a favorite of most of our customers. We will continue to give them the best,” he said.
Idroid Africa co-founder Jawad Qureshi on his part lauded UTL’s marketing drive that aims at taking services closer to the people.
“Idroid smartphones are made with the customer in mind. We aspire to give our customers technologically advanced handsets at an affordable cost. Our partnership with UTL is also a move in the right direction,” he asserted.
