4G internet should be made affordable

Editor, I am very confident that there are so many things we can do with LTE. The only hindrance I see now is the price, which is too high and not affordable to most Rwandans. That's why I am wondering why they have been made that expensive while we were always told that this is a national infrastructure.

Editor,

I am very confident that there are so many things we can do with LTE. The only hindrance I see now is the price, which is too high and not affordable to most Rwandans. That’s why I am wondering why they have been made that expensive while we were always told that this is a national infrastructure.

 

I know that LTE is in Rwanda due to the partnership between the Government of Rwanda and Korea Telecom.

 

If the government played an important part in bringing this technology to the people, I think it would have been made affordable and telecoms shouldn’t charge a lot.

 

If this continues in the coming years, I am afraid we would have built a castle on a sandy beach. The government should issue some instructions for the good of the people, instead of being satisfied with this redundant infrastructure.
