Cape Town - Cabinet has approved a broadband policy for South Africa to ensure wider, cheaper internet access, government spokesperson Themba Maseko said on Tuesday.

Maseko told a post-Cabinet briefing the policy's main aims were "greater accessibility and affordability" and implementation would proceed at local, provincial and national levels of government.

South Africa's low broadband penetration has been seen as a stumbling block to economic and societal development.

The department of communications released its draft broadband policy in September last year.
