Mobile phones dominate in South AfricaPosted: August 4, 2011
From the Neilsen blog.
As I spend half my time there and its where my family live, here’s some really interesting stats:
More Africans have access to mobile phones than to clean drinking water
In South Africa, the continent’s strongest economy, mobile phone use has gone from 17 percent of adults in 2000 to 76 percent in 2010.
Today, more South Africans – 29 million – use mobile phones than radio (28 million), TV (27 million) or personal computers (6 million).
Only 5 million South Africans use landline phones.
