2013 Year in review: SA tech in November


We’re getting close to the end now. The end of the beginning, that is. We’re really looking forward to 2014 and everything it will bring. In the meantime, though, let’s cast our minds back just a few weeks and have a look at our favourite things that happened in November.

The big news was dominated by eTolls, the National Broadband Policy and the on-going battles between telecoms operators. But we like things on the periphery, and these are our finest words about them.

Did we miss any big events in November? Let us know below.
