Mr. Aditya Sahaya, Director – Business Development at Prologix Distribution said, “According to theInternational Telecommunications Union (ITU)research, in the year 2013, the total number of internet users in Africa was 16 for every 100 people; whereas the same statistics across Europe was 75 for every 100 and 61 for every 100 in the US. The internet penetration rate is only 12% of the total population in Tanzaniaand 13% in Uganda. Kenya scores better at 28% and is characterized by those ISPs which have transformed themselves into second-tier telcos by rolling out national and metropolitan fiber backbones and wireless broadband access networks, offering converged voice, data and video/entertainment services.
