Moving Toward an Interconnected Africa: The 80/20 Initiative

In 2010, the Africa Internet technical community embraced an ambitious vision to have 80% of all Internet traffic locally accessible with only 20% being sourced internationally by 2020. 

In this webinar we tried to understand what has changed across the continent during this period and what lessons can we draw from this initiative going forward using the findings from our latest study, “Moving Toward an Interconnected Africa: The 80/20 Initiative”.
