The Fantsuam Foundation Community Wireless Network

Kafanchan, located 100 km Northeast of Abuja, is a poorly connected area in terms of fix telephony and Internet connectivity. Today, no fix telephony is available and GSM just arrived in 2005. Fantsuam Foundation is the only Internet Service Provider.

The main objective of this project is to improve access to communications in Kafanchan by implementing a community wireless network. The network will provide Intranet and Internet access to a set of identified local partners. The community network will mainly be formed by community-based organizations such as educational institutions, faith-based institutions and health services.
