Mobile technology is the primary, and often only, platform to access the internet in developing countries, accounting for 87% of broadband connections in these regions. The impact of mobile technology is likely to be even more profound in the future, with 5G expected to have an even greater societal levelling effect than its predecessors.
Let’s get Africa connected
Vodafone, Vodacom and Safaricom’s pan-African connectivity, digital services and digital platforms are supporting Africa’s digital transformation.
Our ambition to expand coverage and modernise networks to bridge the digital divide aims to support rural communities and SMEs and enhance digital and financial skills. In doing so, we can ensure no one is left behind.
We recognise that network and platform capabilities are at the heart of the economic recovery, enabling businesses to innovate and transform public services so as to create a more resilient, competitive, inclusive and sustainable future for Africa.
