    The Future of The Next Billion People Online

    The Future of The Next Billion People Online

    It is estimated that the continent’s potential internet economy in Africa could reach $180 billion by 2025 and $712 billion by 2050. With more global users coming online, broadcasters moving into the online space have the potential to reach an even larger audience by supporting globalized models such as NFT subscriptions with cryptocurrency.

    Connectivity throughout Africa is improving, thanks to a technology called wireless mesh networks that enable decentralized access to the internet. In parts of the world that are often subject to government-mandated internet shutdowns, decentralized connectivity could prevent authoritarian regimes from limiting access to the internet.

    In this episode, Daniel Anstandig discusses the future of the next billion people online, from improved connectivity to banking and healthcare access and improved supply chain transparency in some of the globe’s most dangerous trades.


    ● What does connectivity look like in developing nations today?
    ● Why there is a demand for decentralized connectivity.
    ● What connecting 2.9 billion people will do for the global economy.

    ● Connectivity is difficult to provide in developing nations throughout Africa and Southeast Asia.
    ● Centralized ISPs are subject to government shutdowns, creating a demand for decentralized access.
    ● Better connectivity can improve virtually any aspect of life for the unconnected.
    ● Blockchain can significantly improve existing infrastructures across many industries.

    The Future of Cable TV

    The Future of Cable TV

    Streaming is now more popular than cable. Recent Nielsen data shows that streaming attracts 34.8% of viewers, while cable had 34.4% in July of this year. The broadcasting and media industries have been preparing for this shift for over a decade. With the arrival of streaming in recent years, consumers have migrated away from cable to a more tailored experience on streaming networks of their choice to cut monthly costs.

    So, where does that leave the future of cable tv? Many cable networks have started offering direct-to-consumer connectivity services, while others have focused on b2b opportunities with streaming services. Major tech companies have moved in on broadcasting and entertainment, while smaller broadcasters have migrated to new content platforms like social media and on-demand broadcast audio.


    ● What cable companies are planning to do in the future.
    ● How sports broadcasting is acclimating to the streaming era.
    ● What local broadcasters are doing amid the slowdown of cable.
    ● All about emerging tech from cable providers.

    ● Cable companies are seeking ways to survive the streaming boom.
    ● Cable providers are diversifying into ISPs in some cases.
    ● Local broadcasters and media companies are moving online.
    ● Sports broadcasting lacks the infrastructure to make the migration easy.
