10 Jan 2019

Denmark-based BLUETOWN has announced an agreement with Microsoft to connect approximately 800,000 unserved people to the internet in eastern Ghana, writes Business Wire. The two firms will use Wi-Fi and TV white space technologies to introduce public Wi-Fi zones for Ghanaians, with free access to digital services such as e-learning, e-health and news. Dedicated internet access will also be provided to local institutions and businesses as part of the project.

BLUETOWN Chief Commercial Officer Nick Pallesen said: ‘We look forward to working with Microsoft and together take on our first large project in Ghana. Our organisations’ goals align well and we are confident that this collaboration is just the beginning of a long-standing partnership to improve conditions in Ghana and expand global internet access in underserved regions around the world.’
