Solutions for Internet Lite

When providing Internet in areas with low availability or high costs the focus is on getting as much information as possible through a thin (or bandwidth limited link). Examples of such low availability links are satellite links and congested mobile networks.

Basic Internet provides solutions which optimise the information stream such that a high amount of information can be provided. This information optimization is done in the Basic Internet Core Network or through technologies of our partners, with Opera Mini being the best example of a browser providing a maximum of information given limited capacity in the network.

Example installation

Our infrastructure contains of the Basic Internet central AAA server located in Kjeller, Norway, and the Basic Internet Customer Equipment located in the customer network, as indicated in the figure below.

Basic Internet Infrastructure for optimised information provision

Our distributed architecture opens for a quick deployment of a cost-effective Internet distribution worldwide, allowing for

  • Free configurable provision of educational, informational and global content.
Our aim of free basic access requires as little as 4.5 MByte per user and month, which is about the size of one .mp3 music file.
  • A high-bandwidth local distribution network supporting local collaboration and content distribution
The optional server can be preloaded with education, health or other information, which can be made freely available for everyone
  • A business option for providing full Internet
Through the provision of free Basic Internet we'll promote the individual development, aiming at everyone being able to participate in the Global IT-driven economy. Full business access is part of the Basic Internet solution through the sales of vouchers for full access to the Internet.

Cost examples

Cost overview for a Wifi network based on Mikrotik equipment A typical cost example (status: Oct2018) is presented in the attached figure. From left to right, it shows the reception of the Internet link (back-bone, IP-link), the local network control centre (LNCC), the point to multipoint antenna, and the local hot-spot. In short, the functionality is as follows:

  • The Internet link reception is either performed through a directive link, or through re-using the mobile 3G/4G/5G network. The link directly feeds the LNCC.
  • The Local Network Control Centre (LNCC) performs the filtering for the freemium access, with free access to information begin text, pictures and local information from the Society Server, and premium access to bandwidth-demanding services from the Internet. The LNCC is connected to the Society Server for access to free local content, and provides this information to the Multipoint antenna.
  • The Society Server ( contains information such as health, education and entrepreneurial information, being freely available for everyone in the society.
  • The Multipoint Antenna generates a 90 deg sector link coverage for any hot-spot connecting to it.
  • The Local Hot-Spot consists of two parts, a receive unit for
