Telecom4Good develops self-sustaining programs to help NGOs reduce their direct overhead costs associated with the research, negotiation, procurement, and management of their Internet services globally.
We are passionate about empowering NGOs and entire communities through technology. Our programs encourage collaboration and growth. We believe access to technology can spark community development and positive social change.
We improve the quality and performance of Internet service by working with service providers and lowering costs by aggregating bandwidth, leveraging economies of scale, and offering discounts to our global partners.
Robert Anderson, Founder and CEO
Robert founded Telecom4Good in 2015. His experience with international communications and nonprofit programs has given him an understanding of global business operations and mission-based work.
His career-long focus on improving quality of service motivates him to find solutions to reduce the costs required to meet customers’ business and impact objectives. Robert is driven to create an environment for NGOs to leverage collaboration with other locally-based NGOs, especially those in Africa. Robert has personal relationships with 300+ international NGOs with more than 2,500 offices globally. To meet the needs of Telecom4Good’s NGO clients, he has built a deep-rooted partnership with Cisco Meraki and made connections with more than 129+ Internet service providers around the world. Robert works with many leading NGOs through conferences, round-tables, and webinars sponsored by Humentum (formally InsideNGO) and NetHope. Hearing directly from staff who tackle problems in the field and improve communities daily has inspired Telecom4Good’s programs and overall mission.
