Gimme Fibre Day on 4 November

People all over the world will participate in the inaugural Gimme Fibre Day, an annual 'event' jointly created by the FTTH Councils Global Alliance to celebrate the only future-proof solution and showcase how fibre has positively impacted communities across the world.

The date for this annual celebration of fibre optics was selected because it corresponds with the birthday of Nobel Prize winner Sir Charles Kuen Kao, the man who changed the way the world communicates. Sir Kao was jointly awarded the 2009 Nobel Prize in Physics for "ground-breaking achievements concerning the transmission of light in fibres for optical communication".

FTTH Council Conference 2013

TTH Conference Maropeng Banner

The objective of this year’s Conference is to provide a forum where representatives from all spheres of industry can meet and discuss the most recent advances in the industry, but also consider the future and effective preparation.

The theme of the 2013 Conference is “The Future is in our hands” and we believe that the setting in the Cradle of Humankind provides a perfect platform to reflect, but more than that, to consider the future from a multi-faceted lens.

We look forward to bringing to you the next generation of broadband users and to learn from them how to provision for their future needs. We look to a generation that only knows an ‘always on, always available’ world. This age group of users will allow us to take a peek at life as they know it, but more than that, the future they expect us to enable on their behalf.

The new world of fibre optics has proven to be an exciting industry and we’ll continue to support it through forums like this, to ensure our continent remains at the cutting edge. Along with our program you will have opportunities to meet other stakeholders and share and discuss your thoughts and philosophies about the future of fibre optics in Africa. We invite you to actively participate in all the panel discussions and presentations.

It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to the 2013 Conference of the FTTH Council Africa.
