Google launches its first wi-fi network in Uganda

Posted by

Google’s project to improve web infrastructure in Africa has already resulted in the laying of 800km of fibre optic cables in the country. But they aren’t stopping at cables.


Now, Google has setup its first broadband WiFi network in the country in Kampala, the capital city. The network is available in 120 key locations in the city and will be made available to local internet providers, who will then charge customers for access.

Google has similar projects going on in a handful of countries on the African continent.
