Somalia in high speed internet 'culture shock'

Some residents of Somalia's capital have been experiencing a form of "culture shock" since fibre optic services launched over the last week, an internet provider has told the BBC.

"Any video or site just pops up... they're very excited about the speed," Somalia Wireless's Liban Egal says.

Until now access to the internet has been via dial-up or satellite links.

Through a partnership between UNCTAD and the International Labour Organization (ILO), and with financial support from the Government of…

This week’s first high-level meeting of the Global Partnership on Effective Development Cooperation again puts collaboration at the center of the debate.

There’s much talk about the need for new partnerships to accelerate progress toward the Millennium Development Goals ahead of their expiration next year. Partnerships with the private sector, with innovators of all stripes and with organizations located in the developing world.
