WFP is setting up a POP3 server in Kampala, giving full internet
access through our NTserver here. We have a full time 19.2K link via
Starcom to internet. The country offices through the Rwanda/Burundi
region will be able to phone in (local phone) and get full internet.
Unfortunately, this will be limited to WFP only.
On the other hand, we are about to implement Email connectivity for
about 30 field offices and our implementing partners (NGOs)
gatewaying HF Email to internet. The HF architecture is based on
Codan radios and Codan 9002 high speed (2400 bd) modems.
