eNCA Interview: Zero-rating – Making information accessible to everyone


In a recent discussion on eNCA, DGMT CEO David Harrison laid out a vision of connectivity and opportunity for South Africa. He made it clear: the door is open for mobile network operators (MNOs) to join DGMT’s Social Innovation Register and begin zero-rating public benefit organisations (PBOs). Zero-rating isn’t just about free data—it’s a gateway to knowledge, health, and opportunity for millions who are currently left in the digital dark.
DGMT’s commitment to working hand-in-hand with telecoms is an invitation to ignite widespread change, making the information accessible to all, irrespective of economic standing. By harnessing the power of DGMT’s Social Innovation Register, MNOs have the chance to be at the forefront of this digital revolution, ensuring that every South African can tap into the tools they need to thrive in the 21st century.
