Free Wi-Fi in Kigali


Kigali is going wireless. Broadband Wi-Fi Internet access in public places will soon be rolled out across Rwanda’s capital city and, once available, will be free of charge.

Rwanda’s Utilities Regulatory Agency, the Rwanda Development Board (RDB), and the Rwanda Hotel and Restaurant Association launched the Smart Kigali initiative last week.

According to BiztechAfrica, this initiative is aimed at modernising the lifestyle of Kigali city dwellers and visitors through use of ICT for better service delivery.

To start with, free Wi-Fi in public places will be provided at Union Trade Center, Kigali City Tower, Kigali City Market, MTN Center, Nyabugogo Bus Park, Remera-Kisementi, Stade Amahoro, Kigali Public Library, Kanombe International Airport, KBC, Kacyiru Ministere, KIST and KIE.

Connectivity will be powered by BSC, MTN Rwanda, TIGO Rwanda, AIRTEL, LIQUID Telecom and ISPA.
