South Africa, the country that invented touchtone dialling, has the most established telecommunication network in Africa and telecoms are one of the fastest growing sectors of the economy. Telkom SA, the primary shareholder being the government, once had a fixed-line monopoly, but Neotel now holds a share of the market. Mobile technology is at the fore of current advances; South Africa has the fourth largest mobile communications market in the world, with MTN, Vodacom and Cell C providing mobile phone subscriptions to over 80% of the population. The next major infrastructure initiative is the expansion of broadband accessibility. State, private and public-private initiatives are being put in place to ensure that this process occurs swiftly.
