'People come from all over Africa to play in Uganda because we have the best server'

Interview with Kyle Spencer, of the Uganda Internet eXchange Point, a non-profit organisation which interconnects ISP networks in Uganda.
'Gaming has a lot of inherent economic and social benefits - it's a sustainable development eco-system. The best way to nurture that eco-system is to inspire the arrival of the global games industry.
'To do that we have to solve two challenges: regional connectivity between countries, and establishing accessible online payment infrastructure. We need to integrate mobile money with these software distribution systems.'
