Networking and telecom equipment company Huawei has partnered with Angola’s Ministry of Education and Mongolian based telecom company Unitel to increase internet connectivity in Angola.
The project, formally called E-net, is currently in it’s second phase. The goal of the project is to bridge the “digital divide among Angolan youth, at the same time enhancing research and development in ICT leading to localized innovations”, according to Leon Liu, Director of Huawei Technologies representative office in Angola.
Estimates indicate that E-net will affect 18,000 youth in 18 provinces in the country, and will certainly push internet penetration up in the country which is currently at 14.86%.
