Airtel Uganda to compensate BlackBerry customers

Airtel Uganda on Friday said it would offer its BlackBerry customers a service waiver following a global outage attributed to the service provider Research in Motion (RIM). The BlackBerry outage was caused by a hardware error which halted messaging and Web browsing across many parts of the world, disrupting services for 3 days.
