Namibia on Thursday launched broadband policy with the aim of improving their technological advancement, according to Minister of Information and Communication Technology Stanley Simataa.

Simataa said they are now one of the few countries pushing for such technology in Africa.

The benefits of broadband are enormous and have been well documented, ranging from economic benefits such as growth in GDP growth, jobs creation, market access to social benefits, according to Simataa.

The minister said the policy, which was articulated with the indulgence of various stakeholders in the public and private sector, must deliver the expected results.

“Now that we have succeeded in developing the policy, the arduous task of framing our interventions strictly in accordance with the set policy framework, has just begun,” he said.

He also added that a comprehensive plan has been developed to avoid any miscarriage during implementation. Enditem
