"We need to include everyone and turn the rhetoric into action"

Africa has stepped into a new broadband era:

This year's East Africa Com Industry Keynote Address was delivered by Huawei's Principal Consultant, Nigel Bruin.

The focus of this Industry Keynote was to provide analysis of how broadband enables real socioeconomic development in Africa and how we can get there.

From leveraging infrastructure synergy to connect the last mile, Nigel explains how the National Broadband Network in East Africa can further grow and develop the region's economy and services.

This Keynote also served to lay out the 6 proven ways to develop NBN and the role governements can play in developing sound regulatory policies that can promote omnipresent and affordable broadband services.
