Saturday May 17 was World Telecommunication and Information Society Day (WTISD).
Vodafone Ghana chose to celebrate with its customers in a grand way. It offered fee internet browsing to its customers at selected retail shops to celebrate this year’s World Telecommunication and Information Society Day (WTISD).
The WTISD, which is celebrated on 17 May, was formed to observe the formation of the International Telecommunication Union.
The noble idea of Vodafone was to raise awareness about the endless possibilities of using the internet and its benefits to communities.
This year marks the 150th anniversary of the International Telecommunication Union. WTISD is said to be a day set aside to help raise awareness of the possibilities that the use of the Internet and other information and communication technologies (ICTs) can bring to societies and economies, as well as of ways to bridge the digital divide.
It is an annual event observed on 17th May by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) to mark the founding of the ITU and the signing of the first International Telegraph Convention in 1865.
