Greater mobile connectivity will improve access to healthcare, education and finance

Internet broadband is directly linked to the GDP growth of a country. Services being distributed virtually to rural areas across Africa will enable recipients to become better informed and therefore empowered. Educating children in school about ICT hardware and software applications will eventually create capabilities and build capacity so that Africans can realistically enter the value chain. Lack of regulations is making it difficult for ICT companies to develop innovation and operate in certain countries in Africa, making a replication of services across Africa a challenge.
