About us

Some of the country's small population and isolated villages don’t have required population threshold to enjoy the many amenities and services.
There are many bottlenecks in the rural and less developed areas, for removing them, it is essential to planning and benefiting from international experiences in the development of ICT in rural areas, through coordination with related organizations and institutions.
