Microsoft and Tizeti collaborate to boost high-speed internet services in Nigeria with the Airband initiative

Mar 24, 2022

24 March, 2022 at 1:17 PM Posted by: Anasia D'mello Lagos, Nigeria. 22 March 2022 – As part of its commitment to empowering more Nigerians, stimulating economic activities, and widening the broadband envelope in Africa with affordable broadband connectivity, West Africa’s solar-based internet service provider, Tizeti , has partnered with Microsoft Corporation. The aim is to roll out high-speed Airband internet infrastructure in Oyo State. The Airband initiative supports Microsoft’s and Tizeti’s shared goal of connecting more people to the internet in a cost-efficient way. With 40% broadband penetration in December 2021, millions of Nigerians are still excluded from the global digital economy. Through the Microsoft Airband Initiative, Tizeti and Microsoft will leverage its low-cost wireless technologies to make it easier and cheaper for people, especially those in underserved communities, to access the internet and get connected to the digital economy. The Airband initiative supports Microsoft’s and Tizeti’s shared goal of connecting more people to the internet in a cost-efficient way, starting with Oyo State. Speaking on the partnership, Tizeti’s chief executive officer of Tizeti, Kendall Ananyi, says that Microsoft Airband collaboration will complement Tizeti’s existing initiative in Oyo State and lay a foundation for a robust and thriving digital ecosystem for the large population of vibrant, young people in Oyo State. “We are happy to work with Microsoft on the Airband Initiative as it extends our mission of bringing affordable and reliable internet to more Nigerians outside the digital envelope,” Ananyi says. Tizeti recently launches its fixed wireless network in Oyo State, South-West Nigeria, to provide significant opportunities for cities in Oyo State, that have not had sufficient broadband infrastructure and to improve the state’s competitiveness with high-speed, and unlimited, yet affordable broadband internet from Tizeti. “Communities need reliable, affordable internet access in our increasingly digital world,” says Microsoft Airband general manager, Vickie Robinson. “That’s why Microsoft is working with providers like Tizeti to connect the unconnected, expand opportunity, and close the global digital divide.” Microsoft’s Airband Initiative is focused on advancing digital equity access to affordable internet, affordable devices, and digital skills as a platform for empowerment and digital transformation across the world. For many countries in Africa, there is still a huge digital divide. This boundary between connected and unconnected translates into clear consequences for employment, education, family and social life, and access to information. Partnerships such as this play a significant role in addressing the digital infrastructure deficits in emerging economies, leveraging innovative technology and capabilities, to improve development outcomes for millions of people.
