Market studies report that more than 450 million people are connected to the internet across Africa. However, despite this progress more than 60 percent of Africa’s population remain offline, demonstrating a significant connectivity gap preventing much of the African population from realizing the full benefit of the internet.
The answer to addressing this connectivity gap and expanding internet access across the continent lies with mobile networks. Mobile broadband extends the benefits of the internet and digital economy to users in the most convenient manner. Unfortunately, affordability is a barrier preventing some subscribers from being able to experience the fullness of mobile broadband.
Thankfully there are options to address the affordability issue. Radisys offers a line of premium quality affordable 4G feature phones designed to enable mobile operators to deliver high-value customer engagements. The operator branded phones offered by Radisys are high-quality with user-friendly interfaces and superior economics that are unmatched by any other product in comparable segments.
These phones are not only easy to use, but they also provide significantly better service capabilities than devices operating on legacy 2G networks. The 4G network’s higher bandwidth together with the sleeker user interface and affordable appeal for the masses will encourage greater adoption, helping to close the connectivity gap.
Radisys 4G feature phones enable operators to accelerate subscriber growth, advance broadband penetration and extend greater service capabilities to legacy 2G and 3G users. Boost revenues and add utility without increasing the cost of users’ existing data plans, helping to retain former 2G/3G customers and close the connectivity gap.
