Low internet penetration questions achievement of MDGs in Angola

— filed under: , , , ,

Angola, in comparison to other countries in southern Africa, has continued lower levels of internet access.

The Media Institute of Southern Africa's (MISA) Angola Chapter recently took part in a high-level panel discussion aimed at analysing the media situation Angola.

The discussion panel, organised by the NGO Forum of the European Union, noted that despite the investment by the Executive of the Angolan government and stakeholders, the country, in comparison to other countries in southern Africa, has continued lower levels of internet access.

The discussion panel, which was held at the hall of the Open Society in Luanda on 8th June 2013, was comprised of representatives from civil society organisations (CSOs) working with multimedia tools.

The CSOs discussed the state of Internet penetration and access in Angola based on statistics that were provided by the World Bank, which showed that the country only has 3.2% Internet penetration. This means that, out of a population of 19.62 million, the total number of Internet users in the country stands at 645,460 users.
