Previously regarded as Zaire, the Republic of Congo ranks third in terms of land mass among the nations of Africa, and governs one of the largest populations. For the past few years, the country has encountered severe political unrest and economic depression and these have influenced the future of its resources. Believed to be associated with national development and sustainability, the telecommunications sector, along with other forms of technological advancement, have experienced review. In order to encourage fair distribution of progress among urban and rural areas, the Belgian-Zaire Development Corporation employed solar-powered telephone stations in numerous regions.

Although these sorts of message sending mechanisms have pitfalls, wireless communication remains an essential element in the facilitation of communication across distances.
