News that Rwanda will switch from analogue to digital broadcasting this year ahead of 2015 deadline is a major development.
Traditional analogue broadcasting is outdated and the new digital technology comes with numerous benefits. The country has transformed almost in all sectors and the media cannot be left behind.
I have heard some people complain that transfer to digital broadcasting is costly them heavily but I think, there is nothing good that comes cheaply.
I wish to commend the government for providing over $40 million to the state–owned broadcaster to buy the necessary infrastructure to enable the switch.
