Cell Phone Penetration Studies suggest that a 10 percent increase in per capita GDP is associated with a 21.5 percent increase in Internet users per capita. However, of the about 7.2 billion on the planet, a whopping 4.2 billion people, nearly 60% are not online. In developing countries only 31 percent of the people are online, and in the world’s 49 least-developed countries, it is less than 10 percent, according to the International Telecommunication Union’s 2013 report. Therefore, basic mobile phones can help circumvent this lack of broadband access and be used for m-learning, for example. As Nelson Mandela had said, “Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world,” Products like SHAFRI (Study Hall Africa) are now available to educate and network African school kids, using a cell phone.
