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 over 150 years experience in the telecommunications industry. Since its formation, the Company has successfully raised more than $250m of finance.
Augere currently has access to spectrum in Pakistan, Bangladesh, the states of Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh in India, Uganda, Rwanda and Tanzania. Access to additional spectrum is being actively pursued across Africa and Asia.
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. By Q4 2011 Augere was operating wireless networks comprising more than 700 radio base stations and serving over 180,000 broadband customers.
Augere expects to launch full commercial broadband wireless services in India, Rwanda, Uganda and Tanzania during 2012.
