This project comes under MyDigitalBridge Foundation in conjunction with the Millennium Challenge Account Namibia, and with the support of Microsoft and the Communications Regulatory Authority of Namibia.

The pilot uses white spaces technology to deliver high-speed and affordable internet access through unused television frequency, providing critical access to technology in remote and disadvantaged areas.

MyDigitalBridge is a Namibian not-for-profit organization whose mission is to enrich the lives of marginalized communities through equitable access to technology. The Millennium Challenge Account Namibia (MCA-N) is a development program funded by the United States government to help reduce poverty through economic growth. This collaboration was created between MyDigitalBridge, MCA-N, and the Microsoft 4Afrika Initiative.

This TV white spaces network in Namibia should come online in the first half of 2014. It will connect 34 schools and school circuit offices across the Ohangwena, Omusati and Oshana regions.

MyDigitalBridge says the network will also help further the goals of the Government of Namibia to bring universal and affordable broadband access and improved educational opportunities to its people. Additionally, MyDigitalBridge will make this infrastructure available to third party social entrepreneurs working to extend the reach of existing and new government e -services to currently unconnected citizens.
