Rwanda buses offer free Internet

A noble initiative to transform the economy from agrarian to knowledge based one

A major hiccup that medium and small enterprises in Africa face, is the lack of information to grow their businesses, studies have shown.
To bridge this gap, Rwanda has decided to invest in buses equipped with computers, to offer free Internet services to the rural poor.
The buses also serve as computer training facilities in these underserved remote parts.
“Two more buses have been imported bringing the total number of buses to four. Each bus is equipped with 20 computers,” says Diana Tushabe, Education and Communication Officer eRwanda Project at the Rwanda Development Board (RDB). Studies indicate buses are more affordable than setting up permanent facilities in the country.
