How To Stay Connected in Africa

Ever since I read this book on how mobile networks have spread in Africa and discovered Eric Hersman's blog on technology and life in Africa in the process, I've been following his stories of what's going on there. In case you are planning a trip to Kenya and wonder how to best stay connected to the Internet, here's a recent post of Eric in which he describes how he keeps connected. Should be applicable to other countries in Africa as well. Makes for an interesting read and reminds me of the early days of GSM and GPRS in other parts of the world!
