Breakfast Session

Data Must Fall

This session focused on the new Competition Commission Report on #datamustfall, and how other players are approaching the issue of data costs in South Africa. 

We invited panellists to discuss the impact of this report, what different organisations are doing to achieve cheaper data and how South Africa can achieve universal internet access and free public access.
