Zambia gets fixed wireless

3 Comments

Almost Broadband comes to Zambia, Africa, via fixed wireless. iConnect, an ISP has started selling 512 kbps connections using non-line of sight fixed wireless technology. Fixed wireless technologies are actually slowly making their way into non developed markets, especially in Asia, Africa and Latin America. iConnect is part of the Africonnect group, and according to some reports the early customers include health care groups, non government organizations and other developmental groups. Afrinet is using NextNet Wireless gear in the licensed 2.6Ghz frequency band.
