MTN Uganda has zero rated a number of Universities online learning platforms allowing students and lecturers free access to study at home during this period of the COVID 19 lockdown. This means that no data charges will apply to these educational websites as students and lecturers will be able to utilise them to continue with learning and teaching from home.

Like all other education institutions, the universities officially closed on March 20 after a directive from President Yoweri Museveni that all places of mass concentration suspend their operations to prevent the spread of Covid19. Below is a list of the learning platforms that have been zero rated.

Makerere University
Uganda Christian University
Uganda Martyrs University
International University of East Africa
Gulu University
Mbarara university
Kyambogo university

Makerere University Vice Chancellor Prof Barnabas Nawangwe has lauded telecommunications giant for this gesture saying it will go a long way in enabling students catch up on lost study time as they will now have access to the study materials at no cost. “Our negotiations with MTN Uganda yielded a lot of fruit as the telecom company has accepted to zero rate six of our online learning platforms. We applaud them for this. I now urge our students and lectures to take advantage of this opportunity,” he said.

At the onset of the lockdown, MTN Uganda also zero rated a number of e-learning platforms targeting the primary and secondary students, a move which several parents lauded as it enabled them to continue their children’s learning at home. The other websites that MTN Uganda zero rated targeting pupils and high school students include:

MTN Uganda’s Chief Marketing Officer Sen Somdev said the telecom company is committed to standing together with Ugandans by doing everything it can to reduce the impact that the lockdown is having on their lives. “MTN Uganda will continue to look at ways of supporting our communities and government, to ensure that together, we do everything feasible to get through this difficult time,” Somdev said.
