The Communication industry is of paramount importance to a nation’s socio-economic well-being, as the entity enabling the exchange of information amongst private and public organisations. Traditionally known as a provider of voice-related services and television and radio broadcasting, the industry today specialises more heavily in internet connectivity through the use of satellite, wireless and cable Broadband services.
The implementation of internet facilities is at the core of today’s business dealings where information is sent, received, processed and stored at the speed of thought as well as in civil service operations with the coordination of response and recovery efforts in times of emergencies.
Privately-owned enterprises form the primary shareholders of the industry, and are responsible for the development of necessary infrastructure and distribution of telecommunication services. Working under the jurisdiction of a national regulatory body helps ensure equity and progress within the sector.
