Rwanda Launches New Satellite To Connect Schools With Internet.


It was history made on Friday night, February 27, as Rwanda launched the first ever Satellite in its skies to connect schools with internet across its remote parts of the country.

At exactly 23:37 (local time), Rwandans waited with excitement as the Satellite was launched live on state broadcaster – Rwanda Television.

Many schools in the rural parts of Rwanda are without proper road networks and electricity, making it difficult to acquire internet connectivity.

As part of measures to ease these difficulties, the Rwandan government and a UK based company, OneWeb, on Wednesday launched the first ever satellite that will connect remote schools to the internet.
