Microsoft bringing white space internet, Windows 8 hardware to Tanzania

It’s not just Bill Gates who has a benevolent eye turned towards Africa, as Microsoft has launched the second stage of its 4Afrika initiative in Tanzania. Redmond has teamed up with local provider UhuruOne to roll out white space broadband to the University of Dar es Salaam and is working with banks to help students get loans to buy Windows 8 hardware. Microsoft will also employ some students as on-campus support staff, offering training and qualifications to help them in the future. While there’s no mention of the custom Huawei W1 the company is offering in Kenya, we assume it’ll also be available as part of this project, too.
