President and CEO, MTN Group
“At MTN we believe that everyone deserves the benefits of a modern connected life. Our core business is finding innovative ways to help our customers connect to the power of the internet. As the largest provider of mobile internet services across Africa, it is important that we also sign up for conducting our business in a responsible way in this new digital age."
We firmly believe that technology and connectivity can accelerate transformative solutions to some of the world’s complex challenges. To transform economies and societies, MTN’s CHASE framework is being implemented to ensure digital inclusion through sufficient and affordable coverage, data-enabled handsets, affordable data services, simplified data bundles and enhanced digital literacy. Achieving impact requires us to support people’s online rights and meet their expectations similarly to the rights they hold offline. These issues are complex, inter-related and fast-moving. Collaboration with an ecosystem of stakeholders – commercial partners, regulators, rights’ organisations, communities, investors and emerging innovators, among others - that share our belief and vision will help us ensure a lasting impact.
