Juba, 12th July 2021-His Excellency President Salva Kiir Mayardit has this morning graced the launch of Digitel Network, a fully owned South Sudanese mobile operator.
The Digitel Network is the third mobile operator in South Sudan aimed to fast-track connectivity of areas previously not served by Mobile phone companies.

In his remarks during the launch, H.E. President Salva Kiir Mayardit assured the citizens of the Government's commitment to bring mobile services to the people in remote areas.

“The installation of mobile service infrastructure is an ongoing process. recently people in Maper, Rumbek North County and Pochalla in Greater Pibor Administrative Area have been connected to mobile network. I have been informed that in three weeks’ time, Boma in Greater Pibor Administrative area and Kuron Peace Village in Kapoeta East County will also be connected to mobile network”.

These developments came as a result of direct government intervention with support from private sector which complements the government efforts in the telecommunication sector.

“To demonstrate seriousness in the desire to connect rural communities to mobile network, the government will explore options, including tax exemption that will benefit importation of network equipment and other telecommunications tools. This equipment will help increase digital literacy programs to the next generation for Information and communication technology, ICT driven economy. The tax exemption I am proposing will be done in collaboration with national revenue authority to ensure modalities for tax exemption are consistent with its mandate”. President Salva Kiir said.

H.E. The President also directed the Ministry of Roads and Bridges to coordinate with National Communication Authority to include provisions for Telecommunication infrastructure in all roads design and construction to support the goal of extending digital services to many areas across the Country.
