Technology & Convergence - In Brief

Technology & Convergence

- Gambian network operator Netpage launched its 4G device last week. This is Gambia's first implementation of 4G and the device even went on sale before the official launch. Simon Abraham, Netpage CEO said the device aims to "deliver the service of the promise". He also said it is the next generation communications network and the "next stage of wireless evolution". 

- According to the National Communications Commission (NCC), the current deployment of the country’s first Next Generation Networks (NGN) will drive further convergence of voice, data and video/TV, enabling the provision of triple-play services that will ultimately also involve the country’s already competitive broadcasting sector.
