Accra Ghana has Great Internet Cafes Accra, Ghana West Africa Thursday, August 16, 2007
The internet speeds were fast, I was able to use Skype.com, the FTP worked, there was Air Conditioning in the Café, all was great.
I must write emails Online.
I had only one strange problem, the SMTP or the sending using and email client appeared blocked. Either Yahoo or the local internet provider is blocking it, I am not sure, it may be possible to go to another café and have access. Dial up internet access often has this block, however not normal on has this, I am not sure I have ever seen on high speed access. Togo did not seem to have this SMTP block.
Nigeria appears to be the King of Scam, I am sure Ghana is not far behind, so maybe all the ISP are slowing down spam and scam the easy way, just block the country. Writing emails online is a slow and tiresome, however I can easily understand the world wanting to slow down the spam and scams of Anglophone West Africa.
I was able to put up another video, so this made me happy. Hard to get enthused about making videos when you need to wait five weeks to publish.
