Universal Service Universal Service USPF-logo Provision FundProvision Fund

Through the RUBI project, the USPF provides subsidies to operators for the deployment of network to support the establishment of core delivery mechanisms for broadband services in the rural/semi-urban areas of Nigeria.

Currently, the pilot wireless mobile broadband hotspots are being constructed across the country.  This project provides both wired and wireless internet at high speed in the rural areas at wholesale, and at the same time serves as a catalyst for the uptake of other broadband-dependent projects in those locations such as e-library, e-health, e-government etc.

Objective:

The objective of RUBI is to deliver broadband services in the rural/semi-urban underserved and unserved areas.

Service Model

The funding is a one-off grant determined and awarded through a competitive bidding process.  The selected companies build and operate the facilities to provide services to the communities.

Benefits
  • The presence of broadband stimulates demand for ICT at the community level
  • Facilitates the adoption of ICT by the local people for economic and social development.
  • 100% of USPF supported projects will have access to cost-effective bandwidth
  • Increased ICT-driven small and medium scale businesses
  • Employment generation
