Internet Should Be A Public Utility Service

Hi all,

This is an article I wrote recently:
www.afchix.org/blog_post/internet-should-be-public-utility/

Happy to here your thoughts.

The regulatory framework needs to be future looking. The COVID-19 situation
is bringing us back to the table to revise what we otherwise thought was
reasonable use and penetration of the Internet in Kenya and across Africa.

Good time to revive like APC, KICTANET etc to revisit policy advocacy on
universally accessible and affordable Internet access. Internet should be
considered as critical as other services like water, electricity, sewerage
etc.

We all know the school calendar is in total jeopardy and talks on having
kids repeat 2020 on the table.

Universally accessible and affordable Internet access is what will give us
a continuity strategy for education and support telemedicine. These are
some of the areas where growth must happen.

Regards, Muthoni
