With partners like Simplifi and ISBAT, we are on a journey to create much-needed awareness about the application of ICTs in everyday lives. We strongly believe this has a great potential to Transform Lives,” he added.
He called for the utilization of fibre network which he noted helps to transfer data in very large quantities at a very high speed at a single strand but hasn’t been fully harnessed worldwide.
