Slow internet connection is a big challenge for health workers, researchers, authors and policy makers in LMICs. Equally, if not bigger, is the challenge of cost of the internet access especially if one tries to download materials. Reliability and consistency of connection adds to the list especially when using conferencing tools like Skype, etc. The light at the end of the tunnel is the fact that only a few years ago ( in 1995 only a handful of people had emails in Nigeria) we never thought that we would even be where we are today. The progress may be slower than we wish but there is steady progress being made.
