Future Wireless Technologies Forums (FWTF)

National event series presented by WAPA

Download Sponsorship Document (PDF).

These national events are the pre-eminent forum for the independent wireless network industry in South Africa, bringing together service providers, equipment vendors, civic organisations, national regulators and government. Hosted by the WAPA, the Wireless Access Providers Association of South Africa, the FWTF series is a set of collaborative discussions. It explores trends, best practices and opportunities for new wireless technologies and innovations to be delivered within South Africaís regulatory and market framework.

Stakeholders in the business and regulatory communities can come together to address topics affecting us all ó how to bring better communications services to more South Africans at more affordable prices, in a truly competitive market that rewards innovation and customer service. Operators can bring their real-world experiences to policymakers; technology leaders can present new systems that do more with less; and government can look for solutions to achieving national development goals.

As a non-profit organisation, WAPA strives to encourage a broad participation in this event, with senior delegates attracted by the highest calibre of speakers, delivered through a forum that presents debate and insights of a global standard.

To achieve this, WAPA needs the support and generosity of sponsors to achieve its ambitious vision.
