On 1st September 2020, RENU launched Metro eduroam service, the first of its kind in Sub-Saharan Africa.

On 23rd December 2021, RENU signed an agreement with the Internet Society Foundation, for a USD 200,000$ grant, to extend eduroam to other regions of the country to enable students, staff and researchers, access free, secure and trusted connectivity when off-campus.

Thanks to the BOLT grant, during the first quarter of 2022, RENU was able to deploy Metro eduroam hotspots in 98 locations in 14 towns, upcountry!
