BlueTown and Microsoft to connect 800,000 in Ghana to broadband internet

Denmark-based Bluetown has announced a new agreement with Microsoft that will provide broadband internet access to approximately 800,000 unserved people in the eastern part of Ghana.

The project will use Wi-Fi and TV white space technologies to bring public Wi-Fi zones with affordable internet access and free access to digital services (e-learning, e-health, news and more) as well as dedicated internet access for local institutions and businesses.

The initiative utilizes low-cost wireless technologies to make it easier and more affordable for people to get online and participate in the economy.

In addition to the work in Ghana, Microsoft will provide Bluetown with technology and expertise that can ensure the development of the best and most cost-effective systems and services.
