Positive response to SA Internet Week
JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – THE South African Wireless Application Service Providers’ Association (WASPA) has, for the first time, joined South Africa’s Internet Service Providers’ Association (ISPA) in this year Internet Week (iWeek XV) scheduled for Johannesburg in September.
WASPA Chair, Casper de Villiers, points out South Africa’s internet consumers primarily use their mobile handsets to access the web.
“This makes WASPA’s participation as an official partner in iWeek XV particularly relevant,” says de Villiers.
WASPA’s involvement this year is especially welcome as the self-regulating body for the country’s mobile content and applications industry brings a full day of valuable content focused on the burgeoning mobile sector.
WASPA sessions will cover mobile content and the South African mobile numbering plan. There is also a planned half-day workshop to provide a detailed overview of the local regulatory framework.
The Independent Communications Authority of SA’s role as the industry regulator will be examined, followed by a high-level view of the legislation and regulations that shape the greater mobile industry.
Other partners in the country’s premier ICT industry gathering taking place from September 19 to 23 include the Wireless Access Providers’ Association (WAPA), the ZA Central Registry (ZACR), the ZA Domain Name Authority (ZADNA), INX-ZA and the SA chapters of the Internet Society.
iWeek marks its 15th year by returning to Johannesburg and hosting an estimated 300 ICT industry professionals at the Wanderers Club.
