THE POWER OF CONVERSATION
Before the emergence of the Internet, the spread of social media, the importance of WhatsApp and the need for email access, the telecommunications industry was all about the simple telephone. No other technology allowed people to communicate as effectively at a distance, opening the potential for growth at an unprecedented rate. Our current range of telecommunications systems is extremely broad and is improving and evolving at an exponential rate. It includes land line telephones, cell phone networks and infrastructure, broadcast television, instant messaging, a host of Web- and Internet-based communication, as well as data transmission.
Effective telecommunications systems are essential for South African businesses and individuals. We cannot be expected to operate on the global stage of commerce without the support of a sound communications infrastructure. South Africa’s telecommunications industry encompasses multiple service providers, including our telephone provider, Internet service providers, cellular service providers, national television provision, and satellite operators among more.
