broadband-forum-logoYesterday, as part of the Broadband Forum build up, we asked our followers on Facebook a question:  If you had unlimited broadband at unlimited speeds, what would you use it for?

The responses we got ranged from those that want to consume more content (education, entertainment, social, business), those that would use it to create more content, those that would use it to host content more efficiently, to those that would share the connectivity. We got about 55 responses in total, but we thought we’d share here just a few of the interesting ones. You can access the full thread on Facebook.

I’d setup an Internet WIFI Hotspot in my neighbourhood so all the school kids, Varsity & College students and even madharamadhara can do all their research on the internet freely. Access to information is vital and there are many out there who don’t have access to information. Students could benefit from accessing a wider range of subject information. Younger kids can find out what’s happening beyond our borders in the global village. A lesson in history via the internet can unearth much more information compared to a text book written 20 years ago. Those who are looking for business opportunities can easily do so. My free WIFI hotspot could help my community become an educated and up-to-date community that has access to the latest information on anything. – James Ritala

Create an e-learning platform for small scale gold miners. – Chrispen Machipisa

Have an online tutorial school on web developments and design at an affordable price – Sayi Dzikiti

  2. build my own piratebay for peer to peer network and promote online PIRACY in Zimbabwe, making sure local content is available 24/7 and make revenue from advertising!

      do you really want to publicly advertise that? I mean its not just the average zimbabwean that will read that comment but also the very people that hunt pirates down and sue them for every cent they have – They like to focus on the ring leaders/people running the networks promoting piracy etc as that is where they will make the most impact for least amount of effort

      1. I’m not being mean or rude… I’m being honest
