I guess it will be really easy to put “Africa First” when it comes to business, the day internet access is ‘truly’ deregulated.
I sign the preference of being prudent and wise to exploit our resources and such markets to bridge the gaps.

A mobile telco operator in our region would never achieve such a usage due to:
a) Bandwidth pricing over HSDPA/HSPA or whatever technology is crazy.
b) Most of them still use carrier grade nat.
The company I worked for previously (ARIN region) would eat up a /13 quarterly, VPN services sold on the Asian market. ARIN never cared about content beneficial to their region or whatsoever.
Exactly but we face different challenges in our region one of them being the level of ICT infrastucture development. Its stragtegically wrong to align or follow such policies.
It will be prudent and wise to exploit our resources and such markets to bridge the gaps - (build solid infrastrucutres in our region, create jobs etc).
I guess its difficult to put "Africa First" when it comes business right?
I believe same applies to our service region, unless of course a policy specifying ‘resources are evaluated based on beneficial content to our region’ ?

In deed "its nothing" - the last time I checked not even a mobile telco had achieved that in our region.
We must be tapping ourselves on the shoulder then if this translates to content beneficial to our region.

The role of the boards of those two RIRs was to ensure the policy development process was followed correctly and to be ultimately responsible for the operation of the organization. I don't know if that's still the case.
