Wireless in Kenya Takes a Village

Here’s an article looking at the surprising rapid uptake in mobile phone service in places like Kenya. While even the wireless carriers in Kenya expected slow adoption rates, it’s grown much faster than expected – often due to communities banding together to share a single mobile phone. The article is a little short on details of how this works, so it would have been a better article if they had examples of this in action, but it’s still interesting to see how different communities rush to adopt mobile phone service.
