TIZETI and Microsoft partner to bring affordable internet to 5 million people in Ivory Coast
TIZETI, one of the leading internet service providers in West Africa, has partnered with Microsoft to address the challenge of broadband underdevelopment in Cote d’Ivoire.
This collaboration aims to expand affordable and reliable internet access to more than 5 million people across the country, fostering digital inclusion and driving economic growth. Côte d’Ivoire, like many other African nations, faces challenges in providing widespread access to high-quality and affordable internet connectivity.
Recognizing this opportunity, Tizeti and Microsoft have joined forces to bridge the digital divide and empower individuals, businesses, and communities with seamless internet access. As part of the partnership, Tizeti will leverage its expertise in deploying cost-effective solar-powered Wi-Fi towers and its innovative “Complimentary Wi-Fi” model to provide affordable internet connectivity to underserved areas of Côte d’Ivoire.
Microsoft’s support will enable Tizeti to scale its operations and enhance its network infrastructure, ensuring that more communities can benefit from reliable broadband access. This partnership is expected to facilitate the implementation of digital initiatives in various sectors, such as education, healthcare, agriculture, and e-commerce, unlocking new opportunities for growth and development.
