Africa has one of the highest number of mobile phone users in the world, argues Power

According to an article titled ‘Africa’s rise is not myth’ by Jonathan Power, a veteran foreign affairs commentator, approximately half the people of Africa own a mobile phone.

Power says that in many African countries, phone technology is ahead of Europe and North America.

He argues that it may be more difficult to build up fast Internet penetration on desktops, adding that in some countries 40 percent of mobile owners are using phones for electronic mail and the Internet.
