The State of Internet Rights and Freedoms in Uganda

The Internet is considered the most disruptive information and communication technology that has revolutionized the free flow of information between individuals by offering anyone with an Internet connection, the ability to gather and disseminate news, information, and opinions. In the light of its accessibility and its capacity to store and communicate vast amounts of information, the Internet plays an important role in enhancing the public’s access to news and facilitating the dissemination of information in general.

As of December 2018, Uganda had an estimated 19million internet users, about 42% of the total population. This growth in internet penetration has partly been aided by the increase in mobile telephony penetration which stood at 22 million subscribers, with almost 10 million accessing the internet through the mobile as of June 2018.
