Rwandan government finally launched the first-ever satellite that will connect remote schools in the country to the internet.
The government of Rwanda and a UK based company OneWeb has launched the first-ever satellite that will connect remote schools in the country to the internet. According to Face 2 Face Africa, many schools in the rural parts of Rwanda are without proper road networks and electricity, making it difficult to acquire internet connectivity.
The students schooling in the remote area of the country can now heave a sigh of relief as they will join their counterparts in other schools in making use of the internet.
We gather that the first school to benefit from the broadband satellite is Group Secondary St Pierre, a school located in Nkombo Island.
