Thank you arsene for sharing, much appreciated!
@Peter, yes, ideally a competitive innovative market with good regulation and policy making is likely to impact on access positively.
However factors such as literacy, digital skills and cost of devices among others remain barriers to internet access. We will be doing household, individual and business surveys
to understand this issue further.
We are currently in Rwanda now for the surveys. Heading to Tanzania,South Africa and Nigeria. More countries will be added as the year goes.
If anyone wants access to the data at a later stage, please do get in touch.

>> Hi everyone,
>> As the Transform Africa Summit has been happening in Kigali Rwanda, RIA put together a policy brief to assess pricing trends in the country. Rwanda performs pretty well on our pricing index but still has low internet uptake. To figure out why, we are conducting a household, individual and business survey in Rwanda as well as Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania and Mozambique. More countries will be added on as the year progresses.
