Net Tel @Africa

NetTel@Africa is a comprehensive capacity-building strategy focused on improving the use of information communication technologies (ICT) to achieve socio-economic development goals in Africa. More than a strategy, NetTel@Africa is an international Network of government officials, academics, researchers, service providers, consumers and civil society.

The overall goal of the NetTel Network is to make the provision of ICT more efficient and ubiquitous to all citizens in Africa. Achievement of the goal will require improved policy and regulatory reform and increased private sector investment in ICT (telecommunications sector). The NetTel Network seeks to strengthen the capabilities of policy making and regulatory bodies, private sector operators, consumer advocacy groups, and academic institutions that assist with sustained capacity building in the ICT sector. The NetTel Network operates four concurrent components:

  • International Peer-to-Peer Programme for Regulators of ICT
  • Community-to-Community Programme for development projects
  • Research Programme for Strategic ICT Policies
  • Training Programme in ICT Policy and Regulation

The impetus to establish the NetTel Network was a request by the Telecommunications Regulators Association of Southern Africa (TRASA) for more coordinated training in advanced ICT policy and regulation. Makerere University Faculty of Computing and IT is currently a member of the NetTel Network offering Postgraduate Diploma in ICT Policy and Regulation, a course resulting from collaboration between Makerere University and NetTel@Africa.
