In Sub-Saharan Africa, the reach of mobile networks has expanded spectacularly in recent years and mobile has become the primary way of accessing the internet, driving economic growth, enabling access to life-enhancing services, and creating multiple opportunities for citizens and businesses to thrive. However, there are still many who lack access to mobile broadband networks and even more live within the footprint of a network but are not accessing mobile internet services. Join us to learn how cutting-edge innovation can help drive digital inclusion and hear the latest figures and trends around mobile internet connectivity, including updated statistics from the 2019 GSMA Mobile Connectivity Index. This interactive session will look at the progress made over the last year and practical actions that can be taken to help accelerate digital inclusion in Africa.
