Africa, Connected

The folks at Appfrica have put together some interesting infographs on 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. [%comments]
