The Mozambique government’s Universal Access Service Fund (Fundo do Servico de Acesso Universal, FSAU) has launched projects to improve connectivity in ten locations in the provinces of Maputo, Gaza, Inhambane, Sofala, Zambezia, Nampula and Niassa.

The scheme will ensure broadband access at a speed of 20Mbps at 27 separate sites across the ten localities. The Communications Regulatory Authority (Autoridade Reguladora das Comunicacoes, ARECOM, previously INCM) says the deployment will benefit businesses, farmers, start-ups and other sectors of the community. The FSAU is financed by a 1% levy on operators’ annual gross revenues.
