And digital technology revolution is right up there alongside the invention of fire, agriculture, the wheel, internal combustion engines, and the industrial revolution.

As a continent, Africa is as much a participant in the digital technology revolution, with businesses, education, and communication increasingly taking place via infrastructures born out of this revolution.

So today, in this article I endeavoured to list down the list of African countries with the fastest to the slowest internet connections. Looking at both mobile and fixed-broadband connections separately.
