KICTANet together with our partners formulated a Licensing and Shared Spectrum Framework for Community Networks for Kenya. The Communications Authority of Kenya invited comments from all stakeholders, including members of the public, licensees utilizing spectrum resources, and government institutions on the proposed framework.
Community Networks are a way to bridge the connectivity gap when people come together to build and maintain the necessary infrastructure for Internet connection. Internet by the people, for the people.
The consultation process was meant to give stakeholders and the public an opportunity to comment on the proposed draft framework. The comments received will inform the adoption of the Licensing and Shared Spectrum Framework for Community Networks in Kenya.
The framework was developed in partnership with the Kenya ICT Action Network (KICTANet), the Association for Progressive Communications (APC), the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland and supported by the United Kingdom’s Digital Access Programme.
