COTE D’IVOIRE, Abidjan : Des clients attendent, le 19 novembre 2001 dans une rue d’Abidjan, auprès d’un emplacement de location de téléphones mobiles. Le succès du téléphone cellulaire a presque élimine le téléphone fixe dans plusieurs pays africains, comme en Côte d’Ivoire où il y a deux fois plus de mobiles que de téléphones fixes

ITU’s latest statistics, published in The World in 2009: ICT facts and figures, reveal rapid ICT growth in many world regions in everything from mobile cellular subscriptions to fixed and mobile broadband, and from TV to computer penetration – with mobile technology acting as a key driver.
