NETWORK / CONNECTIVITY
Rwanda is considered amongst the best three countries in terms of better Internet all over East Africa. 4G LTE wireless broadband provides high speed and is well established in many major cities of the country.
The usage of the Internet has increased in Rwanda over past years and can be seen in many schools, health care facilities, government departments, and many other sectors. All this led to a proper internet stricture and the healthy competition led to the improvement of Internet services.
The wifi services are available in many parts of the country, especially in the metropolis cities like Kigali that attract major tourism. The connectivity has improved over the past few years as many signal towers are set up in the cities that make traveling easier.
Recommendation: If you don't want to buy the local Rwandan data services, you can simply use the Wi-Fi at all times. Many major cities and places offer free Wi-Fi. Use a digital platform (Skype, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and much more) to stay connected to your loved ones.
