The United Nations is taking on the enormous project of supplying wireless service to almost 80 African tribes covering 10 countries. The project is expected to encompass nearly a half-million people from the area and is expected to boost the local economy by providing health care and education. Consumers would also have access to 2G data, giving customers the ability to surf the internet. Even though this doesn't fall under the GSMA 3G for all plan -- something is better than nothing, right?
