Africa bridging the digital divides
The Nordic Africa Institute, Research Unit. Department of Economics, Faculty of Economic and Social Studies, University of Khartoum.
2017 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Africa’s leapfrogging information and communication technology development is fueled by mobile broadband. The number of mobile-broadband subscriptions on the continent has increased more than 15 times over the past six years, a growth rate that is three times the global average. However, there are also worrying trends, such as a growing digital divide between men and women, and between urban and rural areas.
