A project in South Africa is using solar power to bring internet to people in the township of Alexandra. Peter Graham, a South African entrepreneur, launched the idea to convert a shipping container into a mobile internet shop that is powered entirely by solar energy. He hopes to promote sales and create interest by showcasing the prototype. The internet is free for students, and subsidised for adults. It is the first internet shop in the township. Al Jazeera's Tania Page reports from Alexandra, South Africa.
