BOCRA expects affordability as LIT settles in the country
The entry of Liquid Intelligent Technologies (LIT) into the country has been well received by many stakeholders, the Internet Services Providers (ISPs) and the regulators as well. Speaking during the rebranding event the Botswana Communications Regulatory Authority Chief executive officer Martin Mokgware said the entry of LIT into the fray was a “significant development of the Botswana telecommunications sector.”
He said since LIT will be leveraging to work with Microsoft, that significant partnership was very vital. “As you bring more players into the country, we expect affordability to be key. The objective fits well into our consumer demands,” Mokgware explained.
He said BOCRA this as a cause for celebration and LIT should support government efforts for innovation. “The challenges facing the sector today are more than just connectivity. BOCRA views this launch as a big move towards enhancing market solutions.”
Other key stakeholders present included the Ministry of Transport and Communications which was represented by Cecil Masiga, the ISP Association of Botswana by Bernard Ndove, and CEOs from different organisations as well as captains of industry.
