About UCC

The UCC was established to implement the provisions of The UCC Act 2013 in accordance with the Laws of Uganda, with the principal goal of developing a modern communications sub-sector and Infrastructure in Uganda, in conformity with the operationalization of the Telecommunications Policy.

The Commission is mandated to undertake a range of functions in the following areas:

  3. Tariff regulation;
  1. Research and development;
  2. Consumer empowerment;
  3. Policy advice & implementation;

UCC is thus not only the regulator, but also a facilitator and promoter of coordinated and sustainable growth and development of Uganda's communications sector.
