Togo, working to close the digital divide

For Togo the digital divide is still a major obstacle on the road to development. The country has rates of Internet, broadband and mobile penetration among the lowest in the region (West Africa). Broadband is an illusion for almost the entire population:  mobile connections are the preserve of 4.1% of the population, landlines only 0.1%

The International Telecommunications Union, in its report “The State of Broadband”, pointed out that to date the government of Togo does not yet have a strategy for the development of broadband, but it is in the planning phase.
