MarketWatch: Mobile broadband drives Internet use in South Africa

19 JUL 2011

 

The introduction of mobile broadband technology in South Africa has led to millions of citizens now accessing the Internet via smartphones. That is one insight shared by the country’s deputy minister of communications, Obed Bapela, in a new MarketWatch video feature published by Mobile World Live this week. The feature video provides a snapshot of the South African mobile market and was filmed on location at last month’s GSMA Mobile Health Summit in Cape Town. Other topics covered in the feature include the competitiveness of the country’s mobile industry (including commentary from market leader Vodacom) and the future auction of LTE spectrum.
