Ultra Rural Connectivity

The Importance Of Rural Connectivity

Rural connectivity serves as an enabler, providing vital resources and opportunities for individuals, businesses, and communities to thrive. The connectivity we roll out provides critical access to healthcare, financial services, e-commerce and education – improving quality of life and economic prospects.

Rural Connectivity Challenges

One of the main barriers across rural areas, especially in Africa, is the lack of infrastructure and terrestrial networks. The traditional methods of connectivity, such as telecommunications towers, take large amounts of time to build, and require a level of infrastructure that rural areas are unable to support.

Another issue facing rural communities is the high cost associated with connectivity. For example, transmission costs for traditional terrestrial systems can vary based on the distance from a tower, so connecting individuals living in rural and ultra-rural areas can be expensive.
