Upon landing in Malawi, I received a text message welcoming me to roam on Telkom Networks Malawi (TNM). The roaming rates were shocking to say the least. It occurred to me that access to reliable WiFi or wired broadband would be critical for my stay. I had arrived to offer training to regulators, media practitioners and policy makers on Regulation of New Media and OTT. I was relieved when I settled into a cozy B&B with decent connectivity and a supportive management.
