Rwanda holds a significant place in StarTimes’ African operations as it marked the beginning of the company’s venture on the continent. In 2007, after persistent efforts, StarTimes obtained the digital TV operation license from the Rwandan government, becoming the first operation license the company secured in Africa.
Since officially launching its operations in Rwanda the following year, StarTimes has rapidly gained popularity among users due to its affordable prices and high-quality services. The successful establishment of StarTimes’ business in Rwanda played a pivotal role in the company’s expansion across Africa.
