Conferences and complaints



Dear LG ICT followers


Two big conferences around IT innovation and government are coming up in October, and we will be looking forward to their outputs: Innovation Africa 2013 in Botswana will try to match up industry leaders with ministers and other government official e.g. for education, higher education, science, and ICT - targeting a broad audience across sub-Saharan Africa.

The SITA GovTech conference in Cape Town also aims to be a learning and information sharing event for both government &  ICT industry decision makers. GovTechs' 2013 theme - Innovation - Technology for 21st Century Government - will put the spotlight on innovative ICT solutions that enable citizen-centric services delivery.

On the other side of the spectrum, mobile service provider CellC now lodged a formal complaint  with the Competition Commission against the dominant incumbent mobile operators, MTN and Vodacom, for anticompetitive practices. Seen in the whole discussion around necessary changes to the regulation of mobile service providers, it could be worthwhile to pay attention on the future developments here.

Enjoy your read - and enjoy your weekend!
