While operators are focusing on monetising data, a major challenge remains unsolved: providing reliable and affordable communications services to rural areas.
Recognising this is a multi-faceted issue, AfricaCom will address the subject of rural telecoms in various sessions over three days:
- Keynote panel on broadband (day 1): Leading MNOs, satellite operators and investors will discuss broadband developments, including in rural areas
- Rural Telecoms Masterclass (day 1): Presentations will cover network strategies, regulation and power solutions open to all visitors
- Mobile Money conference (day 1): Presentations will include delivering mobile money services to remote areas
- Cost-efficiency Networks stream (day 3): A panel discussion will bring together various stakeholders on how to make rural telecoms happen
- VSAT conference (day 3): The role of VSAT in establishing communications infrastructure in rural as well as inter-urban environments will be discussed
- App case studies (days 2 and 3): Hear about apps with the potential to benefit rural areas in the field of m-education, m-health, m-farming and more.
The AfricaCom final agenda will be published soon. Key topics to be covered include broadband developments, content & data, customer experience management, cost-efficient networks, cloud, SDN & virtualisation and much more.
AfricaCom is free for operators, regulators, developers, broadcasters, satellite service-providers, CIOs and banks - to join 9,000 fellow attendees sign up for your free ticket on the website today.
