In many African countries, Internet access is either too expensive for
or unavailable to the general population. But Google has launched a new servicethat
allows those in a few African nations to text globally through its free
email service provided by Google, Gmail.
With Broadband, Internet service is not only faster but less expensive
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
cable system that provides faster and cheaper Internet connectivity.
