The number of South Africans who use their cellphones to access the internet now exceeds the number of those who rely on traditional desktop means of connecting to the World Wide Web. This is according to Rick Joubert, head of Mobile Advertising at Vodacom, who says South Africa has close to 9.5 million mobile internet users compared to the estimated 5 million desktop users.
“The number of unique South African users accessing the mobile internet using WAP is already just about double the size of the number of users accessing the fixed internet. In my opinion this user number will break through the 10 million unique users mark by early 2009,” he told bizcommunity.com.
