UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA - AFRICAN STUDIES CENTER
The East African Internet Association (EAIA) is a not-for-profit group formed in April 1995, seeking, by pooling resources and sharing experiences, to promote and expand cooperative electronic communications and inter-networking in the East African region. Its members include the majority of electronic service providers, serving at least 3,000 users, in the following countries: Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. Partner networks abroad are also members, as are a number of interested individuals. Membership is open to all interested parties for a nominal fee. The Association is in the process of being officially registered in each country.
Good progress has been made in improving and rationalizing regional network topology, lobbying international fora and sharing information on new technologies and developments in the region.
