If there is an ISP conference, we’re sure to be there, no matter where it is held. Capacity Europe took place from 24-26 October in London. The event attracted well over 2 500 senior-level delegates representing more than 85 countries with a keen interest in the global carrier community – so this event was definitely one not to be missed.

Greg Whitaker [ Wholesale: Sales Executive] and Murray Steyn [Wholesale Executive] represented Internet Solutions at the Capacity Europe event. We sat down with the pair to talk about the valuable insights they had obtained while they were there.

Mr Whitaker says: “We were situated right at the entrance, so a lot of people walked past asking, ‘What do you do?’ Our stand depicted our coverage, so we used it to visually explain what Internet Solutions is capable of.”

He adds that Africa presents rich prospects for business growth for international companies, but the reality is that international carriers are wary of investing in Africa without a trusted partner who is familiar with the landscape. That’s where we come in, we are a pan-African telecommunications provider with several years of experience in Africa. We have an extensive network reach across the continent and will share our insights with global carriers to help them tap into the potential growth that exists in Africa.

Mr Whitaker adds that Capacity Europe was a great platform for cooperative competition. “As much as they are our competition, we can still buy from them and vice versa. I believe we can work together to find synergies for success.”

Mr Steyn agrees. In fact, he has written a thought leadership piece on the topic. He says in the blog: “We should be figuring out how to make more collaboration work more often.”
