It is not really a surprise, but there is now a change in the way Africa is viewed. More and more people are concerned about Africa. The latest is ITU, an UN Telecom Agency, that supports a 'Marshall Plan' for Africa. The situation is very bad. Africans accounted for only 0.1% of the world's broadband subscribers in 2006, for about 15% of the world population. In addition, where available, high-cost access depress usage, and fixed line penetration is as low as 1%. The ITU and UN are right: "Unless we do something massive, nothing will happen". Mind is good, but funds are yet to be found. The ITU will host a meeting in Rwanda at the end of October. Can UN find the words to get developed nations participating, as soon as possible, in rescuing Africa?.
