Ministry of Communications and Information Technology adopted a number of initiatives to spread Internet in Egypt with appropriate costs for the various categories of the Egyptian society. The ministry adopted in 2002 the free internet initiative, in order to increase the number of internet users by providing a low-cost tool to access internet. This was followed by the Broadband initiative in 2004 aiming at lowering the cost of ADSL. Such initiatives have contributed to the increase of the number of internet users in 2007. On the other hand, thanks to USB modems and mobile phones connections, the number of broadband internet users has expanded in Egypt, reaching 86% of the overall number of internet users.
