Pan African E-Network Project

Pan African e-Network project is an information and communications technology (ICT) project between India and the African Union that seeks to connect the 53 member states of the Union through a satellite and fibre-optic network to India and to each other to enable access to and sharing of expertise between India and African states in the areas of tele-education, telemedicine, Voice over IP, infotainment, resource mapping, meteorological services, e-governance and e-commerce services.

The project is often described as Africa’s biggest ever in the ICT sector and is expected to extend ICT infrastructure to rural and previously underserved areas. TCIL, a Government of India undertaking, is implementing the project.
