Satellite Internet in Rural Sub-Saharan Africa: a Reality Check | LinkedIn, Eric Anderson, Sep 2017
"Here are my partly-informed observations based on several short visits to one small area of rural sub-Saharan Africa since 2010. In summary:
1. Satellite coverage is beginning to appear, but it’s spotty, expensive and limited,
2. Mobile terrestrial network use is widespread and growing and
3. There are other more immediate challenges unrelated to internet access."

"One intriguing offering is hybrid terrestrial-satellite connectivity with intelligent switchover and appropriate utilization of download and upload capacities as promoted by companies like Forsway, and in the thinking of larger entities like Facebook and OneWeb."
