Mapping terrestrial networks in Sub-Saharan Africa

iMENTORS is mapping terrestrial networks in Sub-Saharan Africa.  The goal is to identify areas on the map underserved by network operators and providers.  These areas also represent good opportunities for governments and the private sector to invest in e-infrastructure projects.

 iMENTORS’ Research Infrastructures (RIs) database is  the first centralised portal of all high level  research facilities and information sources in Africa or hosted elsewhere but focusing on Africa.

During the last recording period, a total of 1398 new organizations and 413 new projects were added to the database, an increase over the last recording period of approximately 67% and 290%, respectively.  In addition, 330 research infrastructures were recorded- a brand new category of information has now been uploaded and available for search in the iMENTORS database. 

Is your network coverage spotty or sluggish? 

Submit information on broadband capacity, cable length and more to iMENTORS so your needs are identified and your voice can be heard.
