Ilitha Telecommunications was founded with the goal of providing affordable and fast telecommunications services to under-serviced communities. We recognized the need for a service provider that could bridge the digital divide and offer connectivity as a basic human right. Our mission is to empower individuals and communities through reliable and accessible telecommunications infrastructure. In line with Sustainable Development Goal 9, which focuses on building resilient infrastructure, promoting inclusive and sustainable industrialization and fostering innovation, Ilitha Telecommunications has been at the forefront of providing reliable and affordable telecommunications services to communities that have been marginalized for far too long.
Through our goal of providing affordable and fast connectivity, we have been able to create local jobs, support local businesses, and empower individuals and communities to achieve their full potential. We believe that access to telecommunications infrastructure is a powerful tool that can help drive economic growth and social development. As we continue to grow, we remain committed to providing our customers with the best possible service and supporting our communities in meaningful ways. Thank you for joining us on this journey towards a more connected and inclusive world.
Ilitha's vision is to create a more equal society by investing in affordable and high-quality digital infrastructure. By connecting those who are under-connected, Ilitha aims to be a catalyst for change on a financially sustainable business model. With a commitment to equitable access to technology, Ilitha envisions a world where everyone has the opportunity to thrive and succeed.
Ilitha Telecommunications' mission is to connect underserved communities and empower their futures by providing super affordable and fast internet connection. We believe that access to reliable internet is a fundamental right that should be accessible to everyone, regardless of their location or financial situation. We are committed to bridging the digital divide and enabling individuals and businesses in township communities to reach their full potential through the power of connectivity.
Ilitha Telecommunications Infrastructure has implemented a dual investment strategy, comprising a self-funded infrastructure build program and a third-party digital infrastructure strategy to deliver affordable, high-quality broadband services. Recognizing the underrepresentation of youth and women in the telecommunications sector, Ilitha will work with rural ICT startups founded by these entrepreneurs to establish community networks in remote areas.
Community Internet Service Providers (CISPs) will own the village-level networks, while Ilitha will provide branding, network design and build, management and remote support, products and services, Internet protocol transit, and integration. Local entrepreneurs will handle network maintenance and sales/support, while Ilitha’s Community Internet Service Provider Program (CiSPP) will help youth, women, and cooperatives in rural areas participate in the digital value chain.
Ilitha will collaborate with government and development finance institutions to provide developmental funding for these entrepreneurs.
Ilitha Telecommunications aims to provide affordable, high-quality broadband to its customers by leveraging a variety of cutting-edge technologies.
We understand that not all technologies are equally suitable for every customer situation and thus, we carefully select the most appropriate technology to deliver quality broadband to targeted markets.
Our goal is to bring more people onto the internet on a sustainable basis. While our broadband strategy is centered around optic fibre, we recognize that remote rural areas and sparsely populated regions are best served by radio and satellite technologies.
Ensuring an acceptable customer experience across our range of technologies is at the core of our customer commitment.
