Augere expands East Africa ops

Emerging market broadband service provider Augere reports that it is expanding its East African operations in Rwanda and Tanzania.

In a statement, the company said it was launching a Rwandan broadband network and had acquired a Tanzanian Spectrum License.
Augere, operating under the brand name QUBEE, will be commercially launching its purpose built WiMAX wireless broadband network in Kigali, Rwanda.

It says QUBEE will offer fast and reliable broadband Internet access to the people of Rwanda, and will further support the economic development of the area, creating significant new opportunities.

In addition, Augere notes it has obtained a spectrum license to offer wireless broadband services in Tanzania, expanding its coverage in the region, where it already has a successful test network in place in Uganda.

David Venn, Global CEO of Augere, said: "This is an exciting time for Augere. We are at the forefront of the broadband revolution in emerging markets, and the launch in Rwanda and the new license in Tanzania greatly increase the opportunities for people in the region and for the Augere business".

Manzurul Alam, CEO of Augere East Africa also commented: "We are delighted to be bringing this new broadband service to Rwanda, and for the opportunity to begin preparations for our launch in Tanzania. I would like to thank the regulators in Uganda, Rwanda and Tanzania for the opportunity to bring fast and reliable broadband to the region."
