Summary
Africa still is the continent with the most 'white spots', places without internet or mobile phone signal, and this holds a great promise for Africans and for the global technology companies that aim to enlarge their markets. More than 80 percent of all African households have mobile phones and in some of the 54 countries on the continent half of that number are smartphones. This program observes how Africa is getting connected and features prominent experts examining these developments such as; Achille Mbembe (philosopher), Juliana Rotich (iHub Nairobi), Robbert Mica (Outernet), Bob Collymore (Safaricom CEO), Isis Nyong'o (former director, Google Africa) and Louis Otieno (Microsoft4Afrika).The people who live in the Parkhurst area of Johannesburg already have the fastest internet connection in the world because they want to organize their street's security with very accurate HD cameras. The iHub in Nairobi is home to 150 start-ups. Some of them are developing an app that makes crowd information about public transport accessible. And in the north of Kenya old-fashioned radio waves are used to bring free broad-band internet. In principle, this method can be used anywhere in the world and it costs practically nothing. The African continent is a laboratory for all possible solutions. High-tech as well as low-tech pioneers come here to try their luck. Can Africa be a forerunner in the world of the future that is one big network?
