SA’s access to internet improved, says a report

A Freedom House: Freedom on the Net 2011 report on South Africa states digital media freedom is “generally respected” and that political content is not censored like in many other countries while we bloggers are not prosecuted for our online activities. It further noted that access to internet had “improved”.

In fact, said the report, more and more people have now an option to access the internet from their mobile telephones than from computers. The report, however, acknowledged that majority of the population is still “unable to benefit from internet access due to high costs and the fact that most content is in English, an obstacle for those who speak only local languages”.
