Mobile phone in Africa starts in Zambia

The International Telecommunication Union says more Africans have begun using phones since 2000 than in the whole of the previous century.

There are now more people using mobile phones across the continent than traditional, fixed lines.

However, only about half of sub-Saharan Africa is covered by a mobile signal, and many people remain too poor to buy their own phone.

Mobile phone companies are one of the great success stories of Africa in recent years.

Use of mobile phones has been increasing at an annual rate of 65%, more than twice the global average.
