Rwanda Pushes For Country-Wide 4G

The African country of Rwanda is pushing for universal access to 4G connections. Even though most of the country's population are currently still using 2G or 3G, the launch of 4G last year was seen as a big step towards making faster internet services available on a wider scale. Tongai Maramba, CEO of Tigo Rwanda, believes that the faster connectivity 4G allows is crucial to the development of business and communication in the country. To promote the new technology, telecommunications provider Tigo has held a 4G festival, where potential users experienced the benefits of the faster connection speed. Current Rwandan 4G users have also spoken out to support the technology, with one user saying that using the internet had been a challenge in the country, due to the speed of the 2G and 3G services.
