Rural fiber network Kenya / Affordable unlimited internet

Rural communities are historically marginalized, as traditional mobile network operators and internet service providers don't see a feasible business case. We partnered with a local mini-grid company called PowerHive and usewireless point-to-point technology to reach the community where they operate their mini-grid on solar. We the used thier pole infrastructure to build a fiber network, connecting their customers to affordable, unlimited broadband internet.
