Nokia Siemens Networks, has pledged its commitment to enhancing the rolling out of information technologies in rural areas around the Africa.
“Across the world, wireless technologies are helping service providers break through traditional access barriers in rural areas to bring consumers in these areas into the digital fold. I-HSPA allows the benefits of broadband and wireless access to be combined and extended as a robust service, “said Richard Kitts, customer business team head at Nokia Siemens Networks.
He added, “It also brings significant operational benefits to service providers and is thus the right choice for initiatives such as this.”
