Kigali skal være trådløs by

I følge avisen The East African vil den rwandiske hovedstad Kigali omkring marts være dækket af en trådløst netværk.

Kigali will soon go wireless after the government launched a $7.66 million wireless broadband (WiBro) facility that is set to make it the first “hot spot” capital city in Africa.

Korea Telecom clinched the $7.66 million deal in 2007 from the Rwandan government to build an infrastructure for the WiBro technology-based network.

The facility, whose infrastructure been under construction for the past two years, will go commercial in three months.

The wireless Internet facility was built by Korea Telecom, South Korea’s largest fixed-line telephone operator and second-largest mobile carrier.
