Research Report. Human Sciences Research Council
This report is part of the Vision 2020 process of the Department of Communications. It focuses on how to achieve investment towards 100% broadband and how to optimise job creation impacts. It assessed the supply side (infrastructure investment) as well as the demand side (factors that increase data use). The country case studies helped to contextualise South Africa’s efforts and shape an appropriate vision. The final component was a realistic analysis of where jobs might be sourced, whether directly or indirectly. Four reports were prepared: • Capital Investment and Policy Dimensions • Identifying Opportunities to Drive Demand for ICT services • Potential for Job Creation in the SA ICT Sector • Country Case Studies.
