South Africa - Cabinet approved the national broadband policy to achieve greater accessibility and affordability

[mybroadband] Cabinet has approved a broadband policy for South Africa to ensure wider, cheaper internet access, government spokesman Themba Maseko said on Tuesday

Maseko told a post-Cabinet briefing the policy's main aims were "greater accessibility and affordability" and implementation would proceed at local, provincial and national levels of government.

South Africa's low broadband penetration has been seen as a stumbling block to economic and societal development.

The department of communications released its draft broadband policy in September last year.
