I think Africa is a tall order, but at least it's almost all greenfield. Literally.

Real broadband will lift all boats...
It's great to see more fiber investment, and it's shocking that vast areas can still "go dark" on the internet for hours. Hopefully, with more robust infrastructure and reliability, enterprises will be able to really grow and take advantage of the connectivity.

On Africa
Africa is beautiful and the possibilities are limitless.  But it is as challenging as ever.   I am glad to see the engagement especially in Uganda and Kenya--these two are two of the more "stable" countries--yet just as challenged with insurgency as ever and the challenging living conditions.    The challenge is to mitigate it for the masses--as such I'll be curious to see how this journey progresses.
