Andile Ngcaba discusses the ability to address the challenge of the growth of Internet in Africa from multiple perspectives.

Much has been written about the development of communications, and particularly the Internet in Africa. The existing thinking and narrative has attempted to explain the reasons it lags many other regions of the World, and focused on technical and economic inhibitors. Notwithstanding this base of knowledge and literature, Andile Ngcaba would like to tackle this issue from the perspective of a practitioner. In doing so, his focus will be on the ability to address the challenge of the growth of Internet in Africa from multiple perspectives. These perspectives include: Internet Governance; Access to orbital slots and space based electromagnetic frequency spectrum; Investments; Language diversity; and Institutional structures.
