Fourth Summit on Community Networks in Africa

‹ Back

As Internet access continues to grow in Africa, with over 450 million people now connected to the Internet, more than 60 percent of the population still remains offline. Community Networks provide a sustainable solution to address the connectivity gaps that exist in underserved urban, remote, and rural areas around the world.

When it comes to connecting communities, we need everyone on board.
