In today’s difficult times of the pandemic, Internet connectivity is of great importance all over the world, especially in Africa. By expanding work and even schooling from home, it is necessary to ensure fast and stable Internet access for everyone, not only in urban areas but also or especially in rural areas, where they are very underserved in this area. The Government of South Sudan is all too well aware of this, so they have recognized the potential that the AIR FWA solution has and offers.
