      Agenda
    • 18. Mobile Internet Jumping the Gap
      It has often been assumed that the mobile internet will be the sole access method for many in Africa. The results of the study show that for well over 50% this is the case.
      In contrast only 20% of UK mobile internet browsers never or infrequently (once a month or less) use the desktop internet.
      Countries: Nigeria, Kenya, Egypt, South Africa, Ghana, Tanzania, Senegal, UK
      Date: October 2010

      Agenda
    • 29. Gaining Word of Mouth Momentum Key for Mobile Internet Growth
      The UK mobile internet market took 2 years to recover from poor word of mouth, caused by poor experience and high charges.
      Mobile Internet growth is dependent on consumers finding it so compelling that they tell their friends and family about it.
    • 30. Gaining Word of Mouth Momentum Key for Mobile Internet Growth
