a cybercafe != the centre of a continent! wake up. there are many
cyber-cafe's in south africa too. sometimes as many as 12 in a single
street. but i'd not call south africa the centre of a continent just
because of it. each country is different. each country brings with it it's
own regulatory framework, incumbent telco of varying degrees, etc.

judging any continent on a single country is extremely closed-minded.
