Quotes

"One broadcaster ends up pocketing all the money because of the number of transmitters he claims to own in the country, which will be a thing of the past if digital migration comes into place" Wambua said
...Now, one can only pay for the amount of data volume one would like to use for a particular activity. "Our customers have realized the importance of the Internet and that has given us the morale to invest more in the segment" he says
"Forty four per cent of all fixed-broadband subscriptions are in Asia and the Pacific, and 25 per cent are in Europe. In contrast, Africa accounts for less than 0.5 per cent of the world's fixed-broadband subscriptions, and despite double-digit growth over the last four years, penetration in Africa remains very low" , the ITU figures said
"Let me tell you that on the global level, Malawi is the best spectrum manager and in Africa we are on position five. We shall also upgrade our old FMM equipment in order to make our job of monitoring simpler but let me say here that it will not be done fast since it is expensive" added Nsaliwa
