Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) has issued notice to 35 companies allegedly importing and distributing unapproved set-top boxes ahead of the digital migration deadline. The regulator is cracking down on the listed firms.

Some of the distributors of the fake set top boxes include KSK Tech International, Alish Enterprises, Der Pro Fabricators, MS Enterprises, Volxton, Marvin Phone City, Taj Mahal and HBT Hotel, and Kings Cross Hotel.

UCC has warned those importing the none-approved set top boxes and advised the public against buying them.
