How will these objectives be achieved?
By the use of a public-private partnership with a symbiotic basis.
High site and basic network infrastructure is obtained by private and public donor funding.This is achieved by rolling out the project in predetermined phases, each phase of which will be used as the showcase model for seeking donor funding for the next phase. Example: the schools project is designed to operate in three donor stages: 10 schools, 100 schools and 1000 schools.
A significant portion of funding is also provided by community contributors that provide free high point infrastructure. This includes local municipalities, forestry services, nature conservation, private companies and individuals, etc. Such “in kind” contributions have a powerful cost elimination effect on the business model.
The quality and reliability of the network is maintained through a strict quality management model which manages network traffic and maintains very low contention rates through continues capacity expansion. This prevents the network from failing due to capacity issues.
The key network sectors is being upgraded to a self-replicating meshed network within two years in order to further reduce contention and exponentially increase the reliability of the network. This makes the network of a next generation standard. For this to happen, international donor funding is required.
