[7.50min] 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.'
