Rural Connectivity Solutions
Delivering voice and Internet services to rural communities has become one of the most pressing issues in telecoms today. Connecting the unconnected can unlock latent benefits for local populations, local businesses, entrepreneurs and service providers, stimulating growth and creating value.
The economics of delivering such solutions have meant that creating a business case has proven to be a difficult challenge. Today, WTL is changing the game with a unique, innovative solution that dramatically lowers the cost of connecting the unconnected.
The introduction of WTL’s rural connectivity solution, Vivada, is a flexible game-changer that makes such investments not only sustainable, but also profitable. Crucially, Vivada enables the provision of services from multiple providers across a shared infrastructure, which enables more stakeholders to take part and reduces the total cost of ownership further. It also disrupts traditional models, as it enables exactly the kind of collaborative, entrepreneurial approach that investment in rural infrastructure needs to unlock to reduce individual risk and to share more widely the benefits.
