The Next Generation Telecom Africa Summit in Accra, Ghana was a three-day critical information gathering bringing together C-level technology executives from regional incumbents and operators. NGT Africa brought together the telecom sector’s leading innovators to share ideas on the deployment of mobile, broadband and fixed services in a rapidly converging market.
A unique market where timing and decision making will define the winners. Africa is the fastest growing market for both mobile and fixed telephony in the world. Broadband internet access is experiencing huge consumer demand and is readily acknowledged for its contribution towards social development. Yet Africa still has the world’s lowest penetration rates. The convergence of fixed and mobile networks and services is the top priority for all operators and carriers. Management teams able to create innovative access and services via well planned technology systems will capitalize on the world’s most lucrative mobile opportunity.
