Subject: Re: [kictanet] Two videos on Network Coverage in Bungoma and Kitui Counties, and in Turkana and Marsabit
You have a good memory. I was flaging the issue.
The locations connected to the Internet by USF were shared by the indefatigable Mr Wambua. However, the information on the Schools and other amenities connected was not shared. This is what Liz is asking about.
Below is the information CA provided
Below are the 62 sub-locations that have benefited from the mobile voice infrastructure project executed through the USF. We shall share the information on the beneficiary schools of the Education Broadband Connectivity Project through our website as soon as possible.
There was an email shared on this list earlier in the year with the details. Not sure if there is a lister who flagged it.
Could you please provide some details on the number of schools, public libraries, hospitals and other community service locations connected to the Internet through USF? Are they open to the public?
Indeed. I confirm that connectivity in my counties (Kilifi and Lamu) has tremendously improved. Credit should indeed go to CA and the last mile service providers.

Many thanks for the Video. I wish to commend the Communications
Authority and the Service Providers for a great job in so far as
Universal Access is confirmed. Over the past week i have been to
Chawiya location (5000 feet hills in Wundanyi Taita Taveta) and
Mwatate in Taita and was able to Watch news and entertain myself
using my smartphone a testament of how far we have connected our
country. I was amazed by the Infrastructure (roads and power) that has
been extended to the top of the hills which has really transformed
lives. The excitement in the eyes of the youth could tell it all. From
Taita i moved on to Mombasa, Kilifi and Malindi and the connectivity
is simply amazing to say the least. I have actually streamed this
videos without any buffering. In conclusion Communication Network
Coverage has greatly improved and as the DG says in the Video the
journey of 1000 steps indeed starts with one step. Well done CA, well
done service poviders.
