Featuring editor-in-chief João Marques Lima, editor-at-large Alan Burkitt-Gray, deputy editor Melanie Mingas and senior reporters Abigail Opiah and Natalie Bannerman. In our guest special, Alan interviews TSF’s head of international funding, Rudolf Gordon-Seymour on the organisation’s work around Covid-19.

In this episode, we talk multi-million Dollar data centre developments announced this week, mainly led by Facebook; Huawei and ZTE are officially banned from rural US networks; Foreign investors line up for Ethiopian telco stake; EllaLink & EMACOM launch the SMART subsea cable initiative; and we will also look at the viability of using 3D printed satellite rockets, at a time when the latest market research says satellite revenues ‘will take three years to recover’.
