allowing more people to jump onboard the Web Express. And now the
African nations of Namibia and Botswana have Broadband. The countries recently linked up to an 8,700 mile-underground

According to a report by the African Development Bank, the Organization
for Economic Cooperation and Development, the United Nations' Economic
Commission for Africa and the UN development agency UNDP, the African
