BRCK: Improving Internet Access in Africa

1 year 8 months ago


Due to the lack of infrastructure, internet access is very low in Africa. It’s difficult to have broadband connections and routers break down under local conditions. Only 18% of households in Africa have internet access, while the figure in Europe is 84%, according to digital innovation made in Africa catalogue that was prepared by Make-it in Africa initiative.


BRCK is a small but powerful router that was made by a group of engineers from Kenya in 2013, and it’s now among a series of hardware solutions that improve the internet access in Kenya. One of the solutions is Moja network with over 40 free Wi-Fi hotspots in Nairobi, provided by the high-performance SupaBRCK micro-server.
