The main objective of Africa Jobs Online is to roll out its e-recruitment offering to African countries, starting with Kenya, Ghana and Nigeria. Once these three territories are up and running, the company will be focusing its e-recruitment expertise via its specialised web portal in countries that include Tanzania, Namibia, Angola, Kenya, Nigeria, Ghana and Zambia Although the penetration of Internet in Africa is quite limited compared to the rest of the world, Africas telecommunications market is the fastest growing in the world making the adoption of Internet on a wider scale far more possible.
This is the reason for the roll-out of the My Jobs e-recruitment portals in a growing number of African countries. Despite being the fastest growing telecommunications market in the entire globe, measurable parameters such as the number of ISP-registered users, overall number of hosts, IPX traffic, and overall available bandwidth all indicate that Africa is way behind the "digital divide". One of the most pressing problems faced by Africa when it comes to the adoption of the Internet is that the overall available bandwidth is scarce. Most Internet traffic to or from Africa has to go through expensive satellite links, since cable connections are few and limited in capacity.
This, therefore, has the effect of increasing the cost of overall Internet usage, especially when it comes to broadband. In 2007 Africa had about 1,000,000 broadband subscribers overall, most of them being companies and institutions. Additionally In most countries (especially in sub-Saharan Africa), a large portion of the population is sparsely distributed over wide areas, which makes it difficult to solve the last mile problem in other words, connecting the end user. But, while Africa's telecommunication market is relatively poor, it is also the fastest growing one in the world and hence the roll-out in Africa of My Jobs from the Soangroup.
Africa growing its communications capabilities swiftly
In terms of growth, the mobile telephony market is emerging as the leader. Between 2004 and 2007 it grew three times faster than the world's average. Because of this mobile telephony services in the form of GSM, 2.5G and 3G devices are becoming increasingly available even in rural areas. At the same time, many countries, including South Africa, Kenya, Malawi and Kenya, have virtually full GSM coverage of rural settlements. The success of mobile telephony over fixed lines in Africa suggests that BWA (Broadband Wireless Access) technologies such as WiMAX could be taken into account for what concerns data communication. Moreover, there is growing experimentation and broadband access is already being carried on in projects like Horizon Wireless in Nigeria and Digital Village Scheme in Kenya. MTN Rwanda is already providing BWA to its customers in Kigali.
Simultaneously, a number of countries are involved in projects that aim at providing Africa with a fibre optics backbone connection to the Internet. TEAMs, EASSy and SEACOM are projects for a submarine cable connection in the Indian Ocean. These initiatives will serve East African countries. Those projects are forging ahead to be able to provide service in time for the 2010 FIFA World Cup due to be held in South Africa.
