Rural coverage is a challenge for mobile network operators (MNO’s) across Africa. High cost, perceived low average revenue per user (ARPU’s) and a lack of rural service delivery expertise have come together to make it an unattractive business proposition.
Likusasa and Connect Africa have joined forces and developed a comprehensive Rural GSM Solution that embraces this new technology in such a way as to provide a sustainable rural GSM service to profitably penetrate rural areas previously regarded as unprofitable.
With an innovative business model that offers Operators unprecedented access to rural areas at little or no risk, the Partnership uses cutting edge passive (Tower & Power) and active (BTS, CORE, EMS) infrastructure to deliver world class services to rural communities.
The Likusasa Connect Africa Partnership has a significant footprint across Africa that enables us to rapidly deploy a sustainable rural coverage solution in just about any location on the Continent.
