Africa on the Internet

Some more random thoughts:

Apparently Kenya now has 1.5 million Internet users - up from 0.5 million a year ago!

For listings by country, see here - what surprised me was Somalia having 89,000 Internet users (from 200 in Dec 2000), more than many other African countries, despite having no central government. But still obviously a long way to go - or, looked at another way, a lot of growth potential in mobile phones and Internet: see here on "a new scramble for Africa" and here on the new East Africa submarine cable being built.
