Information about the project
High Speed Internet by light from renewable energies
Our project is LIFI LED. Our project allows access to high-speed internet (3 Gbps, 30 times faster than Wifi) thanks to the light from LED bulbs from renewable energies. Our project is a green technology (ecological) and acts for the sustainable development because we use visible light to transmit informations and not the electromagnetic waves like Wifi, also we have a value chain which starts from the recycling of the plastics objects to make masts on which we install our bulbs for lighting and the public internet which is very beneficial for rural populations who have neither electricity and internet. Also in addition to this, we added to our solution, diffusion of digital contents for the formation and the information in real time of the populations. Basically, our project is the supply of electricity and high-speed internet, so we fight against the energy deficit and favor popularization of high speed internet only from renewable energies. Our project is a real solution for the sustainable development, development of information and communication infrastructures and for jobs creation.
