There is growing evidence that the diffusion of ICT is an accelerator of economic growth in a country (studies by the OECD, World Bank, Economic Commission for Africa, etc.). Broadband is being identified as a key contributor to economic growth and offering “opportunities for employment generation, creation of new sources of innovation and enhancement of industrial competitiveness” However, it is also important to note that the benefits of broadband will not be achieved by infrastructure alone. It is achieved by focussing on a combination of infrastructure, readiness and usage – with is a key feature of the strategic approach developed African Ideas for our clients.
