Broadband connectivity providers Zoom Wireless and EveryLayer have announced they will provide unlimited Internet access to businesses and residences in Gulu, Uganda
Moses Olweny, sales and marketing manager of Zoom Wireless, said, “Given the overwhelming demand for high-speed Internet in Gulu, Zoom Wireless plans to extend its services to all the busy towns in the northern region of Uganda.”
According to Zoom Wireless, the new service will transform the way people access and use Internet for business, operations and entertainment. The company will also offer cloud-based services and custom-managed Wi-Fi networks for hotels, universities and other campus settings.
Mark Summer, CEO of EveryLayer, added, “Zoom Wireless is delivering the promise of the cloud to northern Uganda with high-speed and affordable Internet. As EveryLayer’s first partner, Zoom Wireless proves the demand, profitability and growth potential of broadband services in emerging markets. We look forward to working with Zoom Wireless to rapidly expand broadband market in the country.”
In August 2014, Uganda-based Zoom Wireless began offering a range of corporate and residential grade fixed wireless services as a trial. It partnered with US-based EveryLayer to design and deploy the network and cloud-based management system in the country.
