This month, the GSMA Connected Society team, in collaboration with GSMA Intelligence, launches the 2020 edition of The State of Mobile Internet Connectivity, accompanying the Mobile Connectivity Index.
In this video, Anne Delaporte, Senior Insights Manager at GSMA Connected Society programme and Federico Agnoletto, Senior Economist at GSMA Intelligence, discuss the key trends of mobile internet connectivity across Sub-Saharan Africa, over two themes: coverage and usage.
In 2019, only 26% of Sub-Saharan African population were using mobile internet, and the same proportion was still not covered by any broadband technology; referred to as the coverage gap. Meanwhile, nearly 50% of Sub-Saharan African population was living within the footprint of a broadband network, but still not using mobile internet services; referred to as the usage gap.
