There are so many events on the go at ITU Telecom World 2018 that it is almost impossible to attend each one. You would have to clone yourself to get to see all that is on in Durban, South Africa this year.
For example the Connect Africa Summit is on the go at the Hilton Hotel in Durban from 11th to 12th September 2018.
It features keynotes, workshops and discussions around connectivity, 5G, satellite technology and much more.
Influential speakers have gathered to share their knowledge and below are just some of the key insights from day 1 of the event:
‘South Africa is the largest consumer of data in Africa’ – Ben Roberts the CTIO of Liquid.
He also noted that most people walk around with 2 mobile phones these days.
‘We need to encourage mobile operators to keep investing’ noted Mortimer Hope the CEO of GH Communications.
He also shared this insightful tip about our data use. This is only for people who use Android mobile devices. He suggests you go to Settings / Communications / Data or look at Data Usage and go to More and click on Show Wi-Fi usage and compare the difference between how much Mobile Data you used compared to how much Wi-Fi data you used. It makes for interesting reading.
The Summit continues tomorrow with Day 2.
