Challenges: While South Africa ranks poorly on prepaid mobile prices compared to other African countries, it does better on pricing of mobile broadband data. But while South Africa performs well on highusage mobile data packages for both prepaid and postpaid mobile baskets (and for lower-use postpaid), the prices for lower–use prepaid mobile, where affordability is most likely to be an issue, remain relatively high. ADSL across the board also is high. Trends: mobile broadband is predominant - it is also, unlike in those markets, both cheaper and faster than fixed
