FTTH Council Africa: Future of Smart
East Africa Workshop | Nairobi, Kenya
28 - 30 June 2016
Kenya's telecommunications market has undergone considerable changes in recent years with increased competition and improved connectivity. Reduced cost of connectivity has made online services much more affordable to a greater proportion of the population.
In January 2016 Nairobi was listed by the Intelligent Community Forum as one of its Smart21 intelligent communities globally and the only African city to be featured in this exclusive group.
African countries are being evaluated for investor friendliness and expansion based on the pace of digital transformation in society and the extent to which this makes a meaningful difference to people. The FTTH Council Africa hopes to contribute to the continent’s readiness by hosting a three day East Africa Workshop in Nairobi, Kenya from 28 to 30 June 2016.
