Top Story

Over the next two years we will be producing five parts that cover the whole of the continent.

Using data gathered in 2003 and 2007, it gives the growth rates for the following: mobile and Internet subscribers, international bandwidth and the number of cyber-cafes. It also includes information on Internet and cyber-café access rates. Data is supplied in spreadsheet form for cross-comparison purposes and the report opens with a commentary on the overall findings from the data.

In addition, there are two introductory pieces, one looking at IP-TV and the other examining the current state of mobile prices in West Africa. In “IP-TV – Will the pioneers get the arrows or the land?”, we examine the current progress of Africa’s IP-TV pioneers in Cape Verde, Mauritius, Morocco and Senegal. In “Trends in West African mobile prices”, we compare mobile prices in the region with those found elsewhere on the continent. Data is supplied in spreadsheet form for the purposes of cross-comparison.
