Africa’s Internet participation to grow?

One of the über-bloggers in the social media space, John Moore, has written a post which shows the current world Internet penetration rates.

Obviously, from an African perspective, it’s sad to see how poorly the continent scores.

However, there is good news. Mark Shuttleworth’s Foundation has published a chart of the number of undersea cables that are coming to Africa. When you see at how poorly the continent has been served up till 2010, it’s no surprise that Africa’s Internet usage was so low.

With all the bandwidth that’s going to become available in the next 12-18 months, it will be interesting to see how Africa’s Internet participation starts to change.
