This paper presents the work done by integrating VSAT (very small aperture terminal) technology with WiMAX (worldwide interoperability for microwave access) to offer telecommunication and Internet access in Dwesa-Cwebe region of South Africa. Ensuring `connectivity' through this sort of initiatives prove to be valuable for rural/remote areas such as Dwesa/Cwebe as this connectivity leads to e-learning, e-health etc. business or service initiatives and ultimately leading towards upliftment of communities by narrowing down the digital divide.
