Telecommunications  

Africa is the last great, untapped telecommunications market. As straightforward subscriber growth slows in the rest of the world, Africa shows only 47 percent market penetration and offers 500 million potential mobile subscribers. Mobile commerce and the role of mobile in health and education are also important growth opportunities.
