ADDIS ABABA: Living in Ambo city, around 100 kilometers west of Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, which was the only city in the country that had 4G telecom services until recently, Merera Gemechu and his fellow community members had to struggle to catch modern telecom technologies.

Gemechu owns an internet café in Ambo. Now, he is optimistic about the possibilities of tapping into the internet world, thanks to the newly launched fourth generation (4G) telecom services in the area.
