Broadband out of reach for majority of SA consumers

6 May 2005

A study by South African web site MyADSL has found that broadband services in the country are too costly for the majority of citizens. According to the study, a high speed internet connection from one of South Africa’s main providers costs anywhere between 46% and 105% of the country’s average monthly wage. By contrast, the study claims that in the US, UK or Japan an equivalent service would cost the around 1% of an average salary.
