The Government of Kenya is aiming to provide better access of ICT to poor rural communities across the countries.
The government plans to promote “digital schools”, which will provide online educational content to students. The government is planning to establish digital villages to provide affordable ICT services to the rural and other underserved areas. The east African country is also planning to start laying an undersea fibre optic cable to link the port city of Mombasa to the United Arab Emirates. The link will provide cheap broadband and terrestrial cables across Kenya, especially to hospitals and schools of Kenya.
