In this article, author David White traces trends in telephone use in Africa. Between 2000 and 2005, the number of mobile phone lines in Africa rose from 15.6 to 135 million, according to the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) - a compound annual growth rate of almost 54%, compared with 24% globally. Mobile users account for 83% of Africa's telephone subscribers, a higher proportion than any other region in the world.

No es una noticia sobre América Latina y el Caribe, pero es un caso de éxito sobre el uso de los teléfonos celulares en un tema de e-salud, por lo que consideramos oportuno reproducir este artículo de El País de Madrid, sobre cómo Tres mil surafricanos se medican contra el sida con ayuda de los mensajes SMS.
The objective in this paper is twofold. On the one hand, it seeks to analyse the process of consolidation that the region experiences today in the mobile market and on the other, identify the impact this market concentration has had on mobile penetration. The ultimate objective behind this analysis is to understand how the trend in market structure may impact the use of mobiles by low income sectors of the population in Latin America
This paper establishes the background for analytical and empirical examinations of mobile opportunities and service capabilities in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). The analytical and empirical studies will form the basis of a regional assessment and, ultimately, to recommendations for meaningful pro-poor policy, regulatory and project interventions in the region.
