MAREN Structure

MAREN, Malawi Research and Education Network, was founded in October 2005 to offer a single focus for pursuing excellent Internet connectivity for the Tertiary Education and Research Sectors in Malawi. It builds on the head start offered by the Malawi Library and Information Consortium (MALICO) VSATs network but aims to go further by providing fast fibre connectivity linked to neighbouring countries, to the rest of Africa and to the EU academic network. MAREN was registered as a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee in late 2009.
