I am from South Africa, hail fellow African!

Do you find it at least somewhat true that we are bridging the digital divide, i.e. access to computers and the Internet, at least as far as you can tell in Eastern Africa? I imagine that costs are still almost entirely prohibitively expensive though?

Thank you for the reply, very interesting.

I imagine the SEACOM cable landing in Mombasa is driving prices down and will continue to provide a cost effective interlink with the rest of the world. We are only now in Sandton, Johannesburg, starting to see a truly affordable Internet link to the world.

Again, thanks for the AMA!
