Minister Simataa launches National Broadband Policy

Information and Communication Minister, Stanley Simataa has launched the National Broadband Policy and its Implementation Action Plan, today.
The minister also unveiled members of the National Broadband Steering Committee (NBSC), which will be responsible for the implementation of the policy.
Simataa emphasised that the broadband infrastructure must not only be accessible but also affordable.
He referred to broadband as the "mother of all oxygen" and called on Namibians to derive maximum utility from the infrastructure that we have, for unlimited digital use.
He, however, highlighted on few policy implementation challenges which are, depressed economic growth, joblessness, increased urbanisation and inefficient service delivery.
