Africa hosts four of the ten fastest growing economies in the world and the continent is the fastest growing market for mobile phones. Nevertheless, Internet access on the continent is the slowest and most expensive in the world. Web We Want and Alliance for Affordable Internet are organising a week of regional action to change this and unlock Africa’s full potential. The goal is not just more and better Internet, the Week of Action will call for the: F.A.S.T – Fast, Affordable, Safe, Transparent Internet for Africa. The Week of Action will last from 1-7 May and will try to connect with everyone who feels strongly about better Internet, locally and regionally, and demand action from governments, municipalities, corporations and communities.
