Trends: Geolocation, income and education are the main determinants of mobile ownership and internet use. In some cases, for mobile use gender gaps have even reversed. Demographic variables such as marital status and even employment do not affect ICT access and use robustly. Challenges: The limits to income and education are seen in rural areas where supply side challenges arise for internet use. Enablers: Importantly it was found that mobile ownership is a key enabler of internet use.
