Vodacom commissioned the HSRC to provide strategic inputs in support of its role in chairing the investment work-stream. This executive summary focuses on highlights for the industry work-stream. Vodacom facilitated more than 10 consultative meetings that were held with researchers, industry players and members of the investment work stream. Another consultative meeting involved the chairpersons of other work streams. This project focuses on how to achieve investment towards 100% broadband, and how to optimise job creation impacts. Vodacom was explicit in wanting an economic analysis, as it was felt the engineering and technical aspects were covered elsewhere. It should also be remembered that there were other committees working on policy, regulation, manufacturing, local digital content, digitising government and human resource development.
