There are currently many phone manufacturers that are producing smartphones that accommodate eSIM.
For more than 15 years, Airtel Uganda, on its 100% 4G Network, has supported the digital transformation journey in Uganda by being 5G ready and eSIM service is the latest addition to this journey supporting device manufacturers that have transformed from physical simcards to digital eSIM.
eSIM will open a whole new world of Imagination on how users can connect, travel, and manage personal and business transactions on smartphones without having to carry more than one phone.
Transtel eSIM-enabled devices are also available to Airtel Uganda subscribers on device financing under their companies. Various companies can contact Transtel and arrange to provide these devices to their employees. The eSIM enabled models include Samsung Galaxy S23, Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, iPhone 14, iPhone 14 plus, iPhone Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max and use them while paying installments.
Currently eSIMs are available at all airtel shops in Uganda and customers can access them with their valid national IDs.
