Issue 371 - 15 Jun 2018 | 1 minute read

Off-grid renewable energy and communications company Winch Energy and Mauritius-based internet service provider iWayAfrica on 11 June announced a partnership to launch the Winch Hub in Uganda. The project will use 20-feet-long containerised solar kiosks, called Winch Hubs, with an integrated very small aperture terminal (VSAT) – a satellite communications system – to provide energy services and broadband connectivity. “Around 80% of Uganda is unserved by reliable means of electricity, with around 65% of the population remaining without access to the internet,” Winch director Tom Wrigley said.
