Thanx all for your valuable comments yesterday on Innovations.  We now kick-off Day 4 theme on Infrastructure and Universal access.  Feel free to squeeze in belated questions on previous themes - as long as you keep the relevant subject line.
Safaricom has continued to expand itsnetwork beyond urban areas.  But what has been your experience of Safaricomservices in semi-urban and rural areas of Kenya?
