ICANN Pledges To Improve African Internet Connectivity

ICANN wants to encourage localised content

Non-profit organisation ICANN has started a new expansion plan to help boost Africa's internet connectivity. ICANN has recently set up offices in Nairobi so they can help “Africa to really enter the internet business industry”. Pierre Dandjinou, Vice President of ICANN Africa, said that the new developments would put Africa in a position to be able to compete with more advanced continents by being able to increase content, development and application online. He said that the aim was to localise the internet in Africa to enable the development of its own content, and that they have “the resources to be talking on the web in [their] languages and I do believe that is where we are really going to gain.”
