Fantsuam Foundation <www.fantsuam.com> is collaborating with Kabissa <www.kabissa.org> to provide email and internet services for Not-for-Profit organizations (including tertiary educational and health institutions) in Nigeria with particular interest in those operating in rural communities where wireless access appears the most viable option. We are also currently working with another group to develop a Linux server that is robust enough for use over poor telephone connections. We have heard of the use of 802.11 technology for rural networks, but we are yet to have an experience of it.
We will therefore like to participate in this initiative. Please keep us informed and involved. Thanks.
