      There are roughly 3 billion people in the world without cellphone coverage and the primary reasons they have no coverage is the lack of reliable electric grid power and extremely low average revenue per subscriber. Solving this problem required the combined innovation of technology and business model, with a primary focus on power consumption and operational costs.

      This talk will describe Vanu, Inc???s technical and business model innovations and roll out plans for connecting rural Africa.
