Big Communications Deal Will Bring More Internet To The African Continent

African nations agree to $1 billion Indian satellite project

Indian government will finance $1 billion project to at develop Africa's information and communication technology infrastructure

A critical mass of countries are signing on to a plan for India to invest $1 billion in the Pan-African e-Network satellite project, a joint initiative with the Africa Union aimed at developing the region's information and communication technology (ICT) infrastructure.

I am happy to see that more people in Africa will have access to the Internet.

At the same time the Indian government pulled off a coup in that they are positioned to see them the networking and switching equipment that will bring this all about.
