Uganda's Communications Commission (UCC) will spend USD$1 million to connect eighty secondary schools to the Internet.

The Ministry of Education and Sports have selected eighty schools, which would be connected in the next financial year. The commission wants to include institutional data access points, Universal Primary Education (UPE) schools and post-primary institutions, government health units and local council (LC3), and population centres exceeding 1 200 people and establishments of public data access points of not less than 256 kbps to each sub-county. The commission has also planned to establish public voice access points within each parish at LC11 level, high-capacity backbone linking all district headquarters and major towns.
