Giant telecom company MTN Uganda maintains that it is going ahead with the termination notice of its interconnectivity agreement with Uganda telecom until UTL pays the 20 billion shillings it owes it.
However, Uganda telecoms refutes the amount in question saying it only owes MTN 6 billion shillings
And as the saying goes when two giants fight it is the grass that suffers in this matter if you are a subscriber to the two companies come 14th of this month you will not be able to make calls to either network.
The telecom industry is experiencing a stand off and this time round it is between telecom giants MTN Uganda and UTL as both companies have a row over interconnectivity fees.
According to MTN, Uganda Telecom owes it 20 billion shillings that has accumulated since 2007. However UTL refutes this amount maintaining that it only owes MTN 6 billion shillings.
MTN says it will go ahead and terminate the interconnectivity to UTL to fast track a resolution from UTL and its shareholders.
But as the row between these companies continues it is the subscribers that will have to suffer as MTN customers will therefore be unable to place direct calls to UTL subscribers and vice-versa.
