Information and communications technology (ICT) use and access in Sub-Saharan Africa continue to increase significantly and ICT has proven to be the major catalyst for users to access and share information and knowledge resources globally. However, most users' personal access to ICTs, such as the Internet from home or workplace, is hugely constrained due to lack of adequate infrastructure and affordability. The Internet has become an important medium for social, political, educational, and economic activities as well as extending knowledge resources and repositories, and enhancing access to information and knowledge sharing in and from Sub-Saharan Africa.
