Mr Makamba announced the entry of a new player in the Tanzanian market, Viettel, citing that “they will disrupt the industry” as they begin building new cable fibre in rural Tanzania.

  • An exciting industry debate discussing connectivity to landlocked countries and the uniform growth of the African telecoms market.
  • Five roundtable discussions took place where delegates were able to choose to attend the session that was of interest to them and their business. The roundtables were extremely interactive, with lots of ideas being thrown around and this was a great opportunity for attendees to network and discover more about one another’s core businesses.
  • Plus the 5KM AMREF Health Africa Fun Run sponsored by LIQUID TELECOM, drinks reception hosted by SEACOM and NEWTELCO, over 300 meetings set through our meeting planner, MeetMe and many other exciting sessions.
