Internet Investments in Africa

Large companies such as Facebook and Google are investing in technology and internet for Africa, knowing the potential the continent has not only in intelligence and innovation, but in numbers. These resources will enhance the progress of the already emerging tech boom on the continent. "The rapid growth in internet usage despite high cost of access and the expected population boom in Africa—already the youngest continent by age of its population—jointly represent a significant opportunity for some of the world’s largest tech firms who are betting big on facilitating internet infrastructure and, by extension, ensuring hundreds of millions of potential customers get online to use their services."
