Since the beginning of the century, we have seen an incredible growth of the Internet worldwide. Indeed, the number of users over the past 15 years has exploded, from 360 millions 985 492, the 31 December 2000, we are passed to 3 billion 366 260 056, the 30 November 2015, be almost half of the world population (7, 259 902 243 billions).

This super connectivity is even more spectacular on the African continent, since 2000, only 4 million 514 400 people were connected, against 330 million 965 359,  in November 2015 , an incredible increase of Internet users more than 7000 % in 15 years.
The Africa, which account for 16% of the world population, sees the Internet develop very quickly across the continent, such as some countries increase the number of users by thousand.

Kenya is the third African country to have the most Internet users, after Egypt (2nd, with 48.3 million ) and Nigeria (1st, with 92.7 million ), with 31 million 985 048 users but in contrary at the others African countries, the Kenyan population is almost entirely connected. For most African countries such as Ghana and Cameroon, development of the Internet is also very fast , being
multiplied by hundred. While some countries have even seen the number of users grow by thousands, as in Congo Rep. Dem., Internet users increased by 4.7 thousand people.
There are still a lot of work before connecting entirely Africa , but with Afrikanet , we continue to connect this beautiful continent !
