Thank you Ben for this,

By the way is Togo a member of West Africa Telecomm Regulators Assembly
(WATRA) now?  The notion of convergence and bundling was mean to benefit
ICTs based economy in the ECOWAS Region - it was in the Strategic Plan for
WATRA (2006 - to?)....

Than you again for this input.

Kind regards
