Information Society Statistical Profiles 2009 - Africa
2009
"This report highlights the latest ICT developments in the region and includes key statistical information for every country. It features a regional analysis of the ITU ICT Development Index (IDI) and the ICT Price Basket, two ICT benchmarking tools that were launched in March 2009. The report points to key policy issues in the region and provides concrete recommendations for policy makers. African countries are facing a number of challenges in increasing ICT levels. They include the lack of full liberalization of markets and the limited availability of infrastructure, such as shortage of international Internet bandwidth. In addition, prices for ICT services remain very high compared to income levels and broadband Internet services are out of the reach of most Africans. "
