Impact of Data Pricing Scheme on Mobile Web access in Africa

Stéphane Boyera · July 12, 2010

This is a very short post to advertise a very interesting initiative driven by two researchers — Jonathan Donner and Kevin Donovan — on the current offer and importance of prepaid mobile data service in Africa.  A draft paper is available online, but the authors are running a crowsourced data gathering to collect as much information as possible from all over the continent.

If you are interested to help and can provide some information about the situation in your country, please go to the Ushahidi instance they are running to collect these data. The final paper is expected in a few weeks/couple of months.

I’m looking forward to reading the results !
