The folks at Appfrica have put together some interesting
infrastructure investment and Internet connectivity in Africa. The graphs
provide information on Internet penetration and network readiness by
country, and the various infrastructure development projects that are
rapidly transforming Internet connectivity in Africa. While Africans
currently represent only 3.9 percent of global Internet users, the
continent’s Internet use has grown by more than 1,300 percent since 2000.
The completion of three major marine cable projects this year is expected to
decrease international bandwidth costs by 90 percent and support further
Internet penetration.
