The GSMA, an association that represents the interests of mobile operators worldwide, has joined the Alliance for Affordable Internet (A4AI), a diverse global coalition of over 50 members committed to driving down the cost of internet access in developing countries via regulatory and policy reform.
The GSMA said it will work closely with A4AI to identify policy and regulatory barriers to internet access and affordability and collaborate on plans to address global issues.
According to GSMA Intelligence, penetration rates of mobile subscribers are as low as 20% in Ethiopia, 28% in India and 30% in Pakistan, though high levels of multiple SIM ownership mean the numbers of mobile connections are higher. ORIGINAL POST AT TELECOM ASIA
