anything missing?

“Is there anything I can bring for you from Europe?”, this visitor asked me the other day. “Anything you miss?”.

I had a hard time thinking about what I could possibly miss, and only now I slowly realize what would have been great: a broadband internet connection.

Yaaaaaani, given the speed the telecommunications sector has developed over the last few years, it’s just a matter of time when you’ll be able to surf on a wireless broadband connection anywhere in Kenya. And if you’re used to modem dial-up speeds, any GPRS/EDGE solution is broadband enough for the time being.
