128Kb into Kigali. There are a few cisco's, 3640, 3620, 2511. There
were two working Sun's - once even an Intel Linux box - but that was
reloaded with Windows. The 128K carrier runs through to the USA along
with the international phone lines via a Satellite link. There are
about 32 - 48 modems on the Kigali node. Some are on US Robotics
modem racks, others are individual units... Radius is in use.
When I was last there - there were no customer home (web) pages... only some
for Telkom (ONTP) themselves..
By now - there should be a link or two at 64K to some local sites - like
There was an analogue line from Kigali to the University at Butare - we
put in some mircocom Deskporte Fast modems - for a 4-wire line. At
the University is a cabinet with three linux servers, a 2511 cisco and
a bunch of analogue modems on the universities phone network.
This may be a 64Kb line by now.
I heard that the University had a VSAT link to some place - this could be to
an international location....
