The internet service offered by Securicom Consultants is based on the Fidonet
Technology. This is actually a store and forward system. A computer at the
office of Securicom Consultants acts as a gateway to other computers in
Sierra Leone connected to it via a modem and phone line.
To access the service. A computer is made to dial the gateway computer at
Securicom's office. Email messages are then exchanged between these
computers. Messages for the internet are automatically transferred to
securicom's computer and messages waiting from the internet for that computer
are automatically transferred to it. The whole connection between computers
takes a couple of minutes.
Messages are transferred to the internet via Baobab Communications gateway.
This computer currently calls Securicom's Computer once a day to exchange
Currently Africana and Salonet conferences are supplied
free of charge. Connection to the email service varies. However, a basic
system costs $600. This includes a 14400 baud modem, installation and
training. Sending messages costs Le250 ($0.36) per Kilobyte and receiving
costs Le150 ($0.22) per Kilobyte.
Hope the above answers your questions. Thanks for your enquiry.
