Augere was established in September 2007 by an experienced team of global telecoms executives with the vision of delivering 'broadband for all'. It is committed to achieving this through the delivery of fast, reliable broadband internet services in emerging markets using wireless networks.

Augere has an established leadership team in place with many years' experience in the telecommunications industry. Since its formation, the Company has successfully raised more than $300m of finance.

Augere currently has access to spectrum in Pakistan, Bangladesh and the states of Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh in India.

Augere's first commercial wireless network was launched under the Qubee brand in Pakistan in July 2009. This was closely followed by the Bangladesh network in October 2009. Today Augere operates wireless networks comprising more than 800 radio base stations and serving over 200,000 broadband customers.

Augere expects to launch full commercial broadband wireless services in India in due course.
