End of Net Neutrality?

Bernard

The answer depends on who you ask.

1. KITOS
2. TESPOK
3. ICTAK ( That of the ICT Practitioners Bill shame)
4. KICTANET
5. KEPSA

At this point your guess is as good as mine. Which brings me to the question why this case maybe. Why we donít have an association that can engage Government meaningfully. We, all of us, have ourselves to blame. Each of us is so focused in their own little cocoons and speak with no single voice that the Mandarins and Apparatchiks at MOICT can and will continue to play around with our livelihoods.
