Written by Peter Pedroncelli

Internet penetration continues to be a challenge in Africa, but there are success stories throughout the continent, with the number of internet users growing consistently.

East Africa is a positive story within this context, with a few countries from this region appearing in the list, while the continent’s biggest economy, as well as the most developed economy, feature prominently on the list.

Despite having a total population of around 100 million people, and therefore at a significant advantage as far as numbers of internet users are concerned, Ethiopia does not feature in the top 12 of this list.

Here are the 12 African nations with the highest number of internet users.
