Kenya ranked ahead of SA in Internet usage

Kenya has more internet users than South Africa, the latest internet world statistics report shows.

Kenya is ranked fourth among Africa’s top internet countries as at December 31 2011 figures. Nigeria is ranked the number one country with 45 million users but this is attributed to its huge population of over 155 million people.

Kenya which has a paltry 200,000 internet users in the year 2000 but currently enjoys 10.4 million users as at the end of last year.
This figure however varies from the CCK statistics that put total number of internet users at 17.3 million combining all mobile and data internet subscribers, terrestrial wireless subscribers, satellite subscriptions, fixed internet connections, fiber optic subscriptions and fixed cable modem users.

According to the World Internet statistics, Kenya’s internet penetration is estimated at 25.5 percent of the population which stands at 41 million people. CCK’s figures put the penetration at 36.6 percent.

The Kenyans users account for Africa’s 7.5 percent people with access to internet.

The fresh report published on www.internetworldstats.com explain how the growth in internet uptake has yielded fruits in Kenya.

The report notes that growth in Africa’s Internet and Broadband sector has accelerated in recent years due to improvements in infrastructure, the arrival of wireless access technologies and lower tariffs.
“Broadband is rapidly replacing dial-up as the preferred access method.

This process is already virtually completed in Africa’s more developed markets. This report provides 126 statistical tables showing trends and developments in the telecommunications markets of the 38 most significant African countries in terms of telecommunications,”

The Communications Commission of Kenya (CCK) quarterly sector statistics for the period October-December 2011 lauded the increase and attributed it to mobile internet subscriptions.

Oh really????

Lets do penetration rates then. .... just to check the validity of that statement.

the truth is, Nigeria is actually very strong in the "soft infrastructure" sector.
