Focusing on the issue of connectivity first as part of internet governance and access as a right, this panel aims to bring together knowledge holders to suggest solutions in ensuring the connection of the next billion in Africa. The panel will be held under a hypothetical understanding that all resources are at hand for the experts and they can go on to state how connecting those in Africa is possible. The panel will be encouraged to look at issues of connectivity and access from a supply and demand side and affordability perspective. Other perspectives of ensuring connectivity will be welcome at the panel.
