“It is an exciting but critical time for DCB in Africa. As more brands seek to maximise the African opportunity, due diligence and sensitivity to the population’s needs from mobile carriers will ensure DCB is democratising, rather than demonised.

“Brands shouldn’t underestimate how much of a commodity mobile data is in Africa. With the right long-term vision, a strategy around data and smart DCB payment roll-out, any brand can unleash the huge potential of the African opportunity.”

Chris Purdie, Group Commercial Director
