Abstract: UbuntuNet Alliance is a driving force in the development of national research and education networks (NRENs), leading the formation of NRENs in its membership region and also playing a major role in the formation of the West and Central African Research and Education Network. UbuntuNet Alliance posits that digital isolation is a major contributing factor limiting intellectual output from the African continent, due largely to the excessively high cost of internet connectivity. Consolidating research and education networking in Africa (CORENA) focuses on the provision of intra-African and global connectivity at bandwidths and costs that are comparable to the rest of African NRENS.
