Before Africa’s potential as a technology powerhouse can be realized, we’ll need to address the thorny issue of affordable internet access. The internet, and the devices needed to access it, is still extremely expensive for millions all over the continent. From Google’s to Facebook’s controversial Free Basics initiative, there’re multiple programs running in parallel, racing each other towards the goal of connecting Africa to the world.
We’re thrilled to host in conversation some of the major players doing the hard work of building the physical and technical infrastructure carrying the weight of Africa’s technology ambitions.
