African businesses and consumers are increasingly adopting broadband for basic internet access and voice services, adding momentum to the move from dial-up to ADSL, a study by BMI-TechKnowledge has revealed. Access to international capacity remains an inhibiting factor to the development of broadband services on the continent, with the notable exception of North Africa.
South African fixed and wireless broadband connections are expected to reach more than 3,3-million subscribers over the period 2007 to 2012, according to a report by ICT market research group BMI-TechKnowledge. It says the increase in connections represents a compound annual growth rate of 33% from this year until 2012.
