Last week, 3air and K3 Telecom connected a school in Freetown, Sierra Leone, with free internet connectivity. This will allow students to have greater access to educational resources and opportunities.

St Joseph’s Freetown Inter Alumnae Association

Saint Joseph’s Secondary School (SJSS) was established in 1866 by the Sisters of St. Joseph de Cluny of St Joseph’s Secondary School Freetown. It is a girl’s school with the goal of providing high quality education and a bright future to its pupils. The school celebrated its 155th anniversary last year.

The school is maintained by the St Joseph’s Freetown Inter Alumnae Association, an association that was formed by former pupils of the school. The association collaborates to maintain the school, its buildings and grounds.

Enabling better learning through connectivity

3air, in collaboration with K3 Telecom, installed the K3 Last Mile Solution at SJSS last week. This will provide the school with free internet connectivity, giving students greater access to educational resources and opportunities.

“Connectivity is an important step in ensuring that everyone has access to the same opportunities. We are committed to connecting people and communities in order to create an environment where young talents feel empowered to learn and share without limits”, says Sandi Bitenc, CEO of 3air.

“A dedicated a dedicated 10 MBPS line”

The K3 Last Mile Solution is a wireless broadband solution that uses a patented, safe microwave technology. It is designed to connect underserved communities that do not have access to traditional fixed-line or mobile infrastructure. 

According to Davor Žic - CTO at K3 Telecom, “Saint Joseph’s Secondary School received a dedicated connection that delivers speeds up to 10 Mbps over K3’s Last Mile solution, providing up to 30Mbps burst data transfer. The Link is backed up with a secondary connection with automatic routing.”

This high-speed broadband internet access is provided over the air, without the need for digging cables in the ground.

Connectivity as the first step to empowerment

Students of Saint Joseph’s Secondary School recorded a video of appreciation, with one student leading the praise followed by a “Thank you” chant from her fellow students. 

“I want to say a very big Thank You to K3 Telecom for providing us with this Internet connection which will be very helpful to us. We will utilize it in a good way. Thank you K3 Telecom!” 

We would like to thank everybody involved in the project and the St Joseph’s Freetown Inter Alumnae Association for their collaboration and the admirable work they do at maintaining and improving the school facilities. Together, we can improve access to broadband connectivity across African communities and empower young talents across the continent with equal access to knowledge and education.
