DW AngolaAngoNet


The AngoNet project was initiated in Luanda in 1989, as a project facilitated by Development Workshop (DW) with Canadian funding support.

For a number of years, AngoNet provided Angola’s only public access to international electronic networks by e-mail through non-profit APC servers in Europe and Southern Africa. With the emergence of commercial Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in the late 1990’s in Angola, AngoNet dedicated itself to provide a non-profit network service for organisations and individuals working in social and economic development and humanitarian assistance programmes in Angola.
