All of African countries do have a cell phone network such as GMS. Both West African countries don't have a data network system. The only African countries provide the data network systems are South Africa (very EXCELLENT coverage), Egypt, Kenya, Mauritius, Nigeria and Senegal. Zimbabwe will roll out a 3G network next month and will be one of 3 African countries ever providing 3G systems.
