Minister of Communications, Roy Padayachie, says the government's pledge to provide broadband access for all South Africans will be like a blood transfusion into the economy.

Padayachie says that the department wants to provide broadband to the homes of all South Africans, adding that a minimum connection speed of 1Mbps is desirable.
