> Currently South African institutions with their legacy space are utilising more than 10 times the space than their nigerian counterparts. The student base at HEI's in the respective countries seems to be pretty similar from published statistics, this policy will address that imbalance by providing access to space those those institutions in Nigeria. It is also very telling that there are single institutions in South Africa that have more IP address space than the entire academic sector in Ghana, Egypt and Congo DR combined!!! This is the VERY reason this policy needs to pass, because it will make it so much easier for these institutions to get space and address the imbalance.
The problem is some community members fear that those some universities whith high student numbers are going to use the new policy to increase the divide you are seeing. More reason for me to say that we need to explore a third alternative that alleviates the fears we are seeing.
