Internet Future for Africa: Intel, UN and ITU Efforts to Globalize Broadband

Broadband access in Africa is less than 1%. In Africa or even Brazil, where mobile phones are more common, maybe WiMAX and better content to phones could get the Internet to spread more widely, more quickly.

Here is a video story about the upcoming Connect Africa Summit, where Intel Chairman Craig Barrett his World Ahead posse will meeting with government and community leaders in Rowanda, Nigeria and Morocco.

This is a video by Jason Lopez, who will be traveling to a few of the stops to report on results.  If you’re in Facebook — who isn’t?!! — follow the trip by joining the World Ahead Group.
