- Providing connectivity to all government institutions and all Rwandans:
- Establishing a central broadband international gateway facility (virtual landing point) in Rwanda that facilitates international connectivity;
- Purchasing and/or leasing broadband capacity to connect Rwanda to undersea fiber-optic cables; and
- Building competent technical capacity to manage and operate the acquisition, distribution and management of international broadband connectivity.
