Telecommunications in Africa

Namibia's telecommunications industry is one of the most advanced sectors among the African countries, since the optimization of communication technology is the primary concern of Nambia's administration. The development of technical knowledge and skills must go hand in hand with organizational restructuring through the commercialization of the old Department of Posts and Telecommunications under the propositions of the Ministry of Works, Transport and Communications. Such activities aim to devise a new economic paradigm through the deregulation of specific functions of the state and the encouragement of business ventures, which foster international competitiveness and exposure. Along with the remarkable success of telecom Namibia in the area of data encoding and transmission the avoidance of cross-subsidization and the fulfillment of social obligations are important.

Keywords:   Namibia, telecommunications industry, technological advancement, organizational restructuring, international competition
