When we talk about the policies that need to be put in place to improve Internet services, we need to look at what we can do to speed up the resolution of these access issues, because unless we do something, many of our citizens would continue to live. without access to the Internet, especially the right type of Internet connectivity, broadband internet, which needs to be facilitated by a broadband infrastructure.
