According to Smit the need for higher bandwidth in the country's businesses is rising.

Meanwhile MTC's general manager of Information Technology, Patrick Mushimba said Namibia is currently experiencing a trend where services that were previously on local servers at each individual company are now moving to the Internet as cloud-based services, in addition the use of video services in businesses is also increasing.
