Since 2000, Sub-Saharan Africa's embrace of cellular technology has brought telephone services within the reach of a majority of the population. Private investment and competition have expanded telecommunications service into rural areas and made it more affordable. Not so for the Internet. Consumers understand the benefits of accessibility to nearly unlimited sources of global information and are demanding better network coverage, affordable prices, and larger bandwidth. Governments are also realizing that broadband can have a positive impact on economic growth and assist in the delivery of public services. Increasing access to broadband is therefore becoming a high priority for policy makers across the region.
