Seven out of 10 Kenyans use the internet, making the country the best penetration in Africa according to data provided by an aggregation website.
A new report published by US-based cloud services provider Akamai also places Kenya first (in African region) in its analysis on the state of the internet in countries and regions in the world. It was ranked 43 globally.
According to Akamai’s report, Kenya posted a strong quarterly gain of 43 percent – the highest in the region—to join Israel and Qatar as the only surveyed countries in the region to have an average connection speed above 10 Mbps. In contrast, Namibia posted an average connection speed of 2.5 Mbps—up 4.8 percent from the second quarter but still more than 10 Mbps below the regional leader.
