There are more mobile subscriptions in South Africa than there are South Africans.

And, we spend more time on the Internet than we do with our television sets.

What are we doing online?

There are over 3 billion active Internet users worldwide, and mobile Internet use has grown significantly in South Africa.

There are over 79 million mobile subscriptions here – 146% of our population.

Over 20% of us use our cellphones to watch videos and to do our banking.

Take a look at our summary of the report – that’s one more thing you can do with your cellphone.
