Market research indicates that over 450 million people are connected to the internet across Africa. However, despite this progress, more than 60% of Africa’s population remains offline, demonstrating a significant connectivity gap preventing a large portion of Africa’s population from taking full advantage of the internet.
The key to bridging this connectivity gap and expanding internet access across the continent lies in mobile networks. Mobile broadband extends the benefits of the Internet and the digital economy to users in the most convenient way. Unfortunately, affordability is a barrier that prevents some subscribers from enjoying the fullness of mobile broadband.
Fortunately, there are options to address the affordability issue. Radisys offers a range of premium quality affordable 4G phones designed to enable mobile operators to deliver high value customer engagements. The carrier-branded phones offered by Radisys are of high quality with user-friendly interfaces and superior cost savings that are unmatched by any other product in comparable segments.
These phones are not only easy to use, but they also offer significantly better service capabilities than devices running on existing 2G networks. The higher bandwidth of the 4G network, coupled with a sleeker user interface and affordable appeal to the masses, will encourage greater adoption, helping to bridge the connectivity gap.
Radisys 4G feature phones allow carriers to accelerate subscriber growth, advance broadband penetration and extend service capabilities to traditional 2G and 3G users. Increase revenue and add utility without increasing the cost of users’ existing data plans, helping to retain old 2G/3G customers and close the connectivity gap.
