  5. My personal experience matches this chart - when on LTE, I rarely jump over to external WIFI hotspots because they are slower due to congestion.

"The share of WiFi opt out has grown since August 2013 when the figure stood at 43 per cent, said the operator." (via EE sees more LTE subs turn away from WiFiMobile World Live)

  10. We’re thrilled to announce a big milestone for Team Kopo Kopo. A few weeks ago, we processed our 1,000,000th payment via Lipa na M-PESA.

    Our first live Lipa na M-PESA payment was for six bottles of Coca-Cola and a cup of tea on March 28th, 2012. Since that day, we’ve experienced twenty-seven consecutive months of growth and now service roughly 15,000 SMEs throughout Kenya.

    We’re on a mission to change the way SMEs manage their businesses in emerging markets. 1,000,000 payments is a good start, but it’s just the beginning.
