Rural Africa joins mobile revolution

You may probably already know that tomorrow is the annual shareholders meeting by Vodafone. Sorry, don't, as yet, know where it is to be held but it could be a great opportunity for a demonstration!! Many of the shareholders are very unhappy with the performance of Vodafone and want to see the back of Sarin. Vodafone aren't doing well.

Trawling through bbc.co.uk and going into business site and looking at Vodafone, all kinds of things came up. Particularly heartbreaking, under the heading "Rural Africa joins mobile revolution"
//news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/4036503.stm is a picture of an African woman wielding a hoe under the shadow of a phone mast. "their land surrounds a 50 metre mobile telecommunication transmitter, part of a modern network which is gradually opening up some of Tanzania's poorest and most remote regions to mobile telecommunications.

3 operators, Vodacom, Celtel and Mobitel, are busy rolling out networks while a fourth, Zantel is based on the island of Zanzibar." Siemens is overseeing the building work of base stations in Tanzania. "Mr. Lyakurwa's team of riggers, all of whom are Tanzanian, scale the base stations, installing communications equipment, which link the towers and create a mobile network." There's lots more on this, too much to put on an email, but interesting and horrifying. Many of the very poor can hardly afford to eat, but will soon feel pressurised to buy a mobile. And we can bet the Operators won't tell them about the dangers of the technology - only how good it all is. Still on the bbc.co.uk business, did you know that Hutchison Whampoa which controls the 3UK network is suing one of its partners - the Dutch firm KPN. "We have instituted legal proceedings in London against KPN mobile for breach of contract and to claim damages for that breach" a Hutchison spokeswoman said. AND Hutchison have sent out a circular saying they have acquired the entire issued share capital of Indusind Telecom Network Ltd., (a company incorporated in India) Reading through that, it is interesting to note that one of the vendors is Hinduja TMT, (along with lnNetwork Entertainment, Kumbat and Pacific Horizon. (Is this the Hinduja that Blair and his cronies were associated with and there was a huge embarrassment?)

Where there's muck there's money, and the telecom industry, along with the politicians are very mucky. If you want to read loads and loads on the telecom businesses, use the bbc. site whilst it is still there.
