Broadband conference attracts top speakers

The 2008 MyBroadband Conference will take place on 27 November at Vodaworld and promises to be the largest yet. Now in its fourth year the MyBroadband Conference has grown to become the premier broadband event on the South African conference calendar.

This year's conference has attracted a top line-up of speakers and panelists, including Vodacom CEO Pieter Uys, SEACOM President Brian Herlihy, Dark Fibre Africa director Richard Came, Vox Telecom CEO Douglas Reed, Neotel CTO Angus Hay and MTN's Manager of Data Services Brian Seligmann.

This year's conference also sees the return of Telkom, with Mike Vos as a speaker, to the MyBroadband conference after a two-year absence and MultiChoice's Richard Fyffe will discuss their plans in the pay-TV and online space for 2009.

A panel discussion chaired by Financial Mail's Duncan McLeod with panelists Douglas Reed (Vox Telecom), Dominic Cull (Ellipsis Regulatory Affairs), Roelf Diedericks (Neology) and Steve Briggs (iBurst) will delve into issues like the impact of the recent VANS self-provisioning ruling and the future of wireless technologies like WiMax.

Through the generous sponsorships of Vodacom, Axxess, Vox Telecom, Miro, Poynting Direct and ECN Telecoms this year's conference is free of charge to all delegates, and Vodacom will even throw in a free lunch and drinks after the event.
