The mobile market in India has seen some dramatic price cuts in recent months and now two big established operators say they will merge to cope with the increased competition from new entrants. The British mobile giant, Vodafone, has announced that it's merging its Indian operation with a local rival, Idea Cellular, to create the largest telecoms operator in the country. The World Bank has announced a funding package worth nearly $60bn dollars for sub-Saharan Africa. And the President of Uber has resigned after less than six months in the job.
