Rwanda is a small country with around 12 million citizens and has a mobile penetration rate of around 78% as of Q2 2018. It also has roughly 5.5 million internet subscribers, which is 46% of the population.
Although they have a relatively low Internet penetration to Kenya for example, it is still interesting to check out what the local telcos charge the citizens for data bundles.
The two main networks in Rwanda are MTN Rwanda and Airtel-Tigo. The latter was a merger and this means both share the active subscriber base rather evenly, with the majority going to the Airtel-Tigo base (5 million vs 4.1 million)
You may be wondering what data bundles they offer to citizens and how much they charge them for and we have you covered in this handy table. The prices have been converted to Kshs.
