Pillar 4: Infrastructure Development

Goal 4

Activity 1: Implement ‘Open Access Network’ infrastructure sharing regime in a bid to champion Universal Broadband Access by 2025.

The Information, Communications and Technology sub-pillar has seen some real progress during the HPPI period. Nevertheless , the exponential advance of ICT technology as a catalyst for innovation and economic growth calls for continuous investments into the sector. Low rankings in the Global ICT Index (118) and Global Cybersecurity Index (141) call for a targeted reform as we embark on the 4th Industrial Revolution. The pending Cybercrime Bill, the absence of open access guidelines, usage and affordability for rural schools, health facilities and public offices have undermined progress on e-services. Expand Coverage to Information & Communication Technologies will be achieved through the following Activities:
