The TechCentral team brings you a special edition of the TalkCentral podcast this week in which we interview communications minister Roy Padayachie about growth and job creation in SA’s technology industry.
We poll the minister on a plan, agreed to with CEOs of the IT industry, to create 1m jobs in the next nine years and to take broaband coverage to 100% of the country’s population in the same timeframe.
Also in this week’s show, your hosts Duncan McLeod and Craig Wilson chat about Afrihost’s acquisition of Axxess, BT Group’s plans to invest in a fibre network in SA and Telkom’s plans to boost fixed-line broadband speeds again.
