Strategically timed to take place a few weeks before the vital CPM-15-2 meeting  and during a period in which countries across the region are finalising many band plan decisions, The Inaugural Sub-Sahara Spectrum Management Conference brought together leading experts to look at all the key spectrum management issues for the region. It examined current strategies and priorities, and analysed the technological and regulatory options that are available to regulators and industry in order to maximise the potential that this key natural resource brings, and to fully release the huge potential that it offers in delivering economic growth to the region.

  • Meeting the deadline for Analogue Switchoff
  • Designing the Digital Dividend
