Broadband Migration to Create Jobs
The Department of Communications says that the 100 percent migration to broadband by 2020 will create one million jobs.
Communications Minister, Dina Pule's projections came at the time when Statistics South Africa announced that unemployment rose to 25.2 percent in the first quarter from 23.9 percent in the fourth quarter of last year.
Apart from the 23 500 jobs expected from the manufacture of set-top boxes in the 2012-13 fiscal year, Pule provided no detail on how these one million jobs will be created.
