SEACOM gives KINU free internet

SEACOM has donated free internet for a year to KINU – a Tanzanian non-profit ICT innovation hub.

SEACOM says it is giving KINU access to 30mb of free Internet capacity to help improve the speed and quality of KINU’s internet connectivity, which will in turn improve the efficiency of the start-up ICT enterprises they develop.

The KINU Hub is the first privately run open space for Tanzania’s tech community to foster co-creation, innovation and capacity building. This collaborative space was established to build a community with a culture of co-creation, and to enable participation into the process of generating new solutions to social challenges. The project is also supported by Google Inc. and the Indigo Trust.

“SEACOM has decided to support KINU and potentially other ICT innovation hubs throughout Southern and East Africa with Internet access because of its strong commitment to stimulating innovation, enterprise development and job creation within Africa’s ICT sector,” said Anna Kahama-Rupia, managing director of SEACOM Tanzania.
