South Africa Parliament Presentation: Digital Inequality in South Africa
Prof. Alison Gillwald will be presenting on the 26th of November before the Parliamentary Committee on Telecommunications and Postal Services as it conducts its public hearings on the Electronic Communications Amendment Bill. Prof Gillwald will make a presentation to the committee on an update on the issues pertaining to the cost to communicate. In particular, the measures introduced in other jurisdictions to reduce the cost to communicate and break duopolies/monopolies; on where a WOAN has successfully been introduced to reduce costs; and on the growing convergence in the ITC sector and how this applies to ICASA’s section 192 role.
