With increased demand in broadband services driven by the pandemic, BSC Chief Executive Officer Christian Muhirwa has shed light on how the firm evolved and adjusted to ensure convenience.
Established in 2008, Broadband System Corporation (BSC) is a leading ICT company that provides broadband connectivity services in Rwanda and the region. Having been in business for the past 13 years, and having successfully deployed a fiber optics network that covers several districts in Rwanda, what’s next for BSC as a company?
Over the last 12 years or so that BSC has served the local and regional markets, we have gained insight and experience to position us as industry leaders. Over the years, we have built capacity, gained a finer understanding of market needs and trends which comes in handy in crafting solutions that are relevant for our clients and stakeholders.

BSC is constantly introducing solutions that have been tested and tried responding to the most critical market needs and demand. For instance, with the increased broadband uptake and use across all sectors of society, we have introduced a cyber security services suite BSC Net Shield, which are simple to use but sophisticated enough to keep modern cyberthreats at bay.
