‘National Broadband Agendas - acceleration and alignment’
Extensia has identified the emergence of National Broadband Agendas as a key concern for African countries. Robust and ubiquitous broadband has been acknowledged as a major driver for national prosperity and global integration into the information society. Broadband infrastructure and services enable scaling up of GDP through socio-economic growth and business development, and enriches sectors ranging from education and healthcare to entertainment and enterprise.
The IAD Summit 2013 has been specifically designed to assist acceleration of these broadband agendas and provide a link between national objectives, service provider goals and end user needs. IAD 2013 is attended by invitation only and we are pleased to invite you to join the conversation with key stakeholders from the region and overseas.
