CONTEXT:

Despite significant progress in recent years, 75% of African still do not have access to the internet. In today’s digital age, they are missing out on one of the best ways to access knowledge, social services and economic opportunities.

CHALLENGE:

How to significantly increase access to affordable and reliable high-speed internet in remote areas across the African continent. To accomplish this aim, we identified four barriers that would need to be overcome to achieve internet access for all: limited infrastructure, lack of affordability, poor digital skills and awareness, and an absence of relevant online content.
