Roke Telkom has joined Sanyu FM’s annual May Mayhem promotion, to reward its customers and the radio’s ardent listeners. Throughout the month of May, Roke Telkom will give Sanyu FM listeners a chance to win prizes within every hour, through a set of competitions.
Prizes to be won include; Monthly data top-ups for existing customers, Home connections to new customers, and Monthly data vouchers to be used at over 600 Rokespots across the country.
In her remarks, Michelle Baine, the Brand Manager, Roke Telkom, said that listeners will be required to call-in during the different radio shows and answer exciting questions in line with Roke Telkom’s wide range of service offerings, it coverage, and general knowledge among other things.
Baine further explained that, “Now, more than ever, the changing times have made the internet an essential need not only for day-to-day engagements but also plays a huge role in the economic development of the country, and this is why Roke Telkom is driving efforts to provide access to internet services for Ugandans.”
For the participants who win, this is a great opportunity to interact with Roke Telkom’s unmatched internet experience which has recently been boosted with improved bandwidth at affordable prices.
“This campaign comes at a time when we as a business are remodeling our offerings as we journey towards surpassing the ever-changing digital and internet usage needs of the market and therefore partnerships as these continue to drive our inclusion agenda as an fully Ugandan-owned Internet Service Provider, born and bred here,” Baine concluded.
Early this year, Roke Telkom enhanced its Rokeplus internet services for its customers. The new Roke Plus packages were upgraded with bigger internet bundles and increased bandwidth at no extra cost to the consumers.
According to the National Broadband Policy report, the ongoing expansion and improvement of data infrastructure in Uganda is playing a major role in the country’s economic development and boosting the contribution of the information and communications technology (ICT) sector to gross domestic product (GDP).
This has risen from 2.5% in 2015 to approximately 3.1% currently. It is estimated that the sector employs over two million people (with direct employment of about one million).
A significant number of young people are engaged in activities such as ICT hubs, resale of value-added services, and ICT innovation, bolstering much-needed youth employment.
