If you are a Linux user living in Uganda and use 3G internet, you may want to try out my tools to connect to the Internet. These are a couple of scripts I created a while back, however, I’ve now updated them to allow for the following:

  • You can now connect to Airtel, Orange/Africell, MTN, UTL, and Smart telecom.
  • I have added the capability to use your PC (or device such as a raspberry Pi) as a router, this way several devices can access the Internet using one 3g dongle. You can create a MiFI of sorts if you’re inclined to.
  • Query your modems for: EMEI, Serial, IMSI numbers, Lock status, Model/firmware version, etc.
  • A few BUG fixes and script clean ups.
