Rwandatel’s Corporate Communications Manager, Cleophas Kabasiita said: “The rates are...part of our promise to stay ahead in what has become an exciting and competitive market.”

Early this month, Rwandatel announced the increase in its subscriber base 35.2 percent to over 600,000 from 443,534 in June attributing the rise to the launch of the On-net Rwf3 per minute tariff.
The country’s leading Internet Service Provider (ISP) by market share also introduced its first Rwf200 scratch card for its prepaid mobile users, currently the lowest denomination on the market. Currently, Rwandatel offers the lowest local calling tariffs of Rwf3 per minute.
