Redefining Affordability

Affordability is often defined as “1” for “2”. This means 1GB of data for 2% of average monthly income. According to a joint report by A4AI and ITU, “people in developing countries pay on average 4x as much for mobile data as people in developed countries – 2.5% versus 0.6% of average monthly income for 1.5GB.”

On the African continent, South Africa is one of the countries where Internet access is considered “affordable”.

But even with this definition, more than half of Internet users in South Africa are still at a severe disadvantage.
