Find me phone signal!

Before we installed a microwave relay WiFi booster at Kiruru village,  phone signal could only be found by climbing up on top of a termite hill, midway between the powerhouse and the school! When installing equipment, we’d periodically have to pop back to the termite hill to call our team back in the UK for advice. Unless people are expecting a call in Kiruru, they won’t go searching for a location to get signal, which makes contacting the community there and organising visits in advance extremely challenging. Phone signal is understandably high up their list of priorities, and we hope that by installing internet we will take them one step closer to being able to communicate with the outside world.
