Internet service in Gabon is unreliable and expensive.  At this time, e-commerce is not widely used and not a practical means of doing business in the country because of slow internet connections and poor internet penetration rates among the population.  Internet usage is expanding but lack of bandwidth and extremely slow speeds hamper internet entrepreneurs and shoppers.
