Many parts of the world are hooking up to broadband, except Sub-Saharan Africa. Blinkered anti-technology 'leadership' is the cause - witness the clueless approach to technology under the Obasanjo government. The new administration has a huge opportunity to embrace technology by building a fibre-optic infrastructure to span the country, and promoting alternative submarine cable projects to supplant the useless SAT-3 cable to enable competition amongst wholesale bandwidth providers. Anything less and Nigeria/SSA will continue to fall further behind. Nigeria lags far behind even Ghana in the broadband access stakes. See this story in today's Guardian.
