1. What is Manda Mobile?

Manda is a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) powered by MTN Uganda. Basically, this means that they operate on the networks of other mobile operators.

Traditional broadcasters and telecommunication companies rely on licensed spectrum. This is purchased from the UCC, but MVNOs rely on the infrastructure and networks of an established telco to deliver their service.

Manda is a new service that provides customers with a differentiated experience by focusing on data as a means to an end. Manda is data-centric and provides a personalized experience for each customer. It is the first fully digital service that is designed to provide an enhanced customer experience.

2. Where can I buy Manda Mobile SIM cards?

A Manda SIM card costs UGX 5000 and must be purchased from an authorized Manda agent using your original national ID. You can get a Manda agent nationwide at Manda brand stores and kiosks.

3. Manda Sim Card Prefix

Note that Manda SIM cards have the same prefix as the MTN Uganda prefix. These are the 077xxx, 078xxx, 031xxx and 039xxx. A new Manda SIM card comes with free MB, free minutes and UGX 500 for MTN Mobile Money. What is interesting to me is that you can use your Manda SIM cards to effectively carry out all mobile money transactions.
