In a bid to get creative broadband use ideas from none other than the users themselves SEACOM has launched a competition dubbed “What could Africa do with more bandwidth?”.
For a chance to win a Flip UltraHD camcorder valued at around $200 and an unspecified “insane Seacom hamper“, East and Southern Africans (I wonder where the demarcation is) are invited to submit entries in the form of a video or a picture explaining how Africans can maximize on the influx of high speed broadband that has been built around the African shores.
The competition is running from the 1st of October to November 29 and users should be registered users of the SEACOM blog.
SEACOM built and owns a submarine fibre-optic cable network which runs along the East Africa coast inter-connecting South Africa, Mozambique, Madagascar, Tanzania and Kenya. The undersea cable was officially switched on in July 2009.
You’re scratching your head; should I? Do I have what it takes? How will I do this? Too much work no?
Stop scratching your head bald and give it a shot!
