Airtel Uganda Partners with Badili Africa to Offer Affordable Refurbished Smartphones, Boosting Accessibility

Airtel Uganda collaborates with Badili Africa to address smartphone affordability, providing access to quality, budget-friendly devices.

​​Airtel Uganda’s new partnership with Badili.Africa will allow Ugandans to access refurbished smartphones

Airtel Uganda, a leading telecommunications provider, has joined forces with Badili Africa, a prominent re-commerce start-up specializing in refurbished smartphones, to address a significant challenge in Uganda’s mobile phone market. The scarcity of affordable, high-quality smartphones has been a hurdle for many Ugandans seeking to stay connected and engage in the digital realm.

The partnership between Badili Africa and Airtel Uganda is a strategic move aimed at expanding the accessibility of quality smartphones in the Ugandan market. This joint effort is a testament to Badili’s commitment to providing affordable alternatives and promoting sustainability through the reuse of electronics.

Amit Kapur,  Airtel Uganda’s Chief Commercial Officer said that the aim of the partnership is to drive smartphone penetration and put this powerful technology in the hands of more people due to the endless possibilities a smartphone offers.

We are driving smartphone penetration, however, one of the things that hinders this initiative is affordability. So, this partnership will bring affordable smartphones. The phones start as low as 250k, and you will have access to the best smartphones at pocket-friendly prices.
