Mushroom Networks recently released an interesting Infographic on Internet
usage in Africa. With over 167 million Internet users on the continent and
about 15 percent Internet access penetration, the continent’s Internet
numbers are expected to continue to accelerate led by large African
Internet markest such as Nigeria, South Africa and Kenya. As has been much
analyzed, mobile continues to be the leading driver for access with over 60
percent of Internet users in countries like Nigeria accessing the Internet
via their mobile devices.
*As undersea cables continue to go live across the continent and as
ambitious Internet projects such as Facebook’s Internet.org and Google’s
Africa Internet access projects pick up steam, hundreds of millions of
Africans are expected to come online and partake in the constantly evolving
online ecosystem.​*
