Outside of South Africa, there are a number of African countries where the
size of their population and the wealth of their economies should make them
ideal places for rapid internet growth. Nigeria is an obvious candidate to
become a large internet market but barely seems to have started down this
road. In News Update 16 John Dada looks for the reasons why this has not
occurred and how change may be in the offing. Plus news, useful web sites,
the digital toolbox and e-jobs.
News Update is a free e-letter covering African internet content and
infrastructure developments published by Balancing Act. The latest issue and
all previous issues appear on the Kabissa.org web site (www.kabissa.org),
which is a Balancing Act pilot project. For further information about
