The Connected Society Innovation Fund for Rural Connectivity, which is funded by UK aid from the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), was set up to expand digital inclusion in rural areas through innovative new technology solutions. We are delighted that the partnerships between MTN Uganda and iSat Africa, and Vodafone Ghana and NuRAN Wireless, have now brought life-enhancing mobile coverage to up to 50,000 people in several deep rural communities through this project. Below we detail why the Fund is so important and the successful solutions.

NuRAN comes back from near death financial experience to implement its first network as a service contract with Vodafone in Ghana | Balancing Act


4 December 2020
NuRAN comes back from near death financial experience to implement its first network as a service contract with Vodafone in Ghana
NuRAN has come out of the financial valley of the shadow of death to announce its first network as a service implementation with Vodafone in Ghana. Russell Southwood spoke to Francis Letourneau, CEO, NuRAN about the company’s new direction.
Newly minted network as a service provider NuRAN Wireless has announced its first contract for seven sites in Ghana with Vodafone. Two weeks ago the first site went live and the others will follow.
The Covid-19 pandemic has slowed down progress on the implementation, as it has been both difficult supplying goods and getting people to go to the site. As a result, it has been just over a year since NuRAN won a GBP330,000 grant as the winner of the GSMA Connected Society Innovation Fund for Rural Connectivity to carry out the work. It will be used to “to test and evaluate their new, innovative mobile internet connectivity solution for unconnected rural communities in Ghana”.

Ghana, Uganda to pilot GSMA-backed connectivity solutions
Over a period of 18 months, Vodafone Ghana and MTN Uganda will work with Fairwaves Inc., iSat Africa and NuRAN to test new mobile internet connectivity solutions for unconnected rural communities in Africa.
This project is an initiative of the GSMA through its Connected Society Innovation Fund for Rural Connectivity that awarded grants of up to £330,000 to Fairwaves Inc., iSat Africa and NuRAN.
According to the GSMA, the goal is to deploy mobile broadband networks in rural areas. These will provide low-cost mobile internet coverage through commercially sustainable models that can be scaled and replicated in similar environments across the region.
