ICT very crucial in Rwanda’s development

You get to wake up sometime in the morning, and the first thing after saying a quick prayer is probably checking your email or notification system on your IPhone. Communication has been made faster and easier in the modern era of technology. Most of the best ways of transferring information are basically Internet based. There are lots of ways people communicate today; from electronic mail, to social media sights like Facebook, twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ and many others all of which are Internet based. The fact that most these use Internet, means there is likelihood that Internet traffic is inevitable. This traffic may be un-noticed on certain continents that have a greater bandwidth, and faster Internet networking. In other places, however, many of the Internet users that have a lower bandwidth tend to suffer with slow Internet connection.

 However, in this current generation, most of the information is on the Internet. Any kind of research can be done and completed online without ever using any hardcopy or book for research. With that kind of generation, it is necessary that we keep up with a better and faster Internet connection, because with that, people will be able to make research, learn new technologies and many other things all of which are internet based (or online) and in many cases free of charge. Social media sites like YouTube offer a lot of free learning and research about anything, but it’s sometimes impossible to watch a video because of the slow Internet connection. With the fibre optic cables getting installed, such issues will be no more and Internet users will even make more research that will eventually develop the country.

 As Rwanda continues to develop, its impudent that ICT infrastructure is kept at the forefront on the list. Apparently, checking on the pillars of the Rwanda Vision 2020, development of a good ICT infrastructure is one of the crosscutting issues that the country intends to unveil. By 2020, Rwanda projects to have Internet access at all administrative levels, for all secondary schools and a large number of primary schools. With this kind of future goal, Rwanda is indeed aiming at being the true heart, icon and best ICT hub on the whole of African continent.

 When you take a closer look at these first class countries like the US, the only thing that really puts them ahead is their well-developed and coordinated ICT infrastructure that includes a lot of great technology. Moving from satellite to optic fibre cable technology, all of which boost faster communication relays, its important that we keep up with all recent technology developments, and with that, am convinced that Rwanda will be the on the forefront of Africa’s best countries, and the world’s best destination.
