By Amy Turner - Com Series Staff Writer, KNect365 Coming soon to the Com Series blog and YouTube channel... Here is a sneak preview of our interview with the Regional Government Relations Manager at Tigo Rwanda, Pierre Kayitana. We sat down with Pierre following his panel discussion on the One Network Area Initiative at East Africa Com to talk about the harmonising of calling tariffs between the participating nations of the Northern Corridor, the socioeconomic impact of this initiative and what is still to be done to improve telco connectivity in the region.
If you are interested in how tech and telco is enabling socioeconomic development and social empowerment on the African continent, through initiatives such as the above, you might be interested in attending AfricaCom.
Africa's biggest tech and telco event is taking place between the 14th - 18th November at the Cape Town ICC, find out more here.
The South Atlantic Express (SAEx) project, which aims to connect the Americas and Asia via South Africa, has reached the study, survey and permission phase, with Alcatel Submarine Networks looking into the details.
