Fewer than one out of every 250 people in Africa use the net.
The African countries where the internet is most popular are:
- South Africa
Why isn't it more popular?
It's expensive. On average, to surf the net for 20 hours costs more money than you can earn in a month in many parts of Africa.
- Many kids haven't learnt to read.
- They don't always have electricity - especially in the countryside.
- The government in South Africa is keen for schools to have access to the internet - but many teachers say they still don't have enough books or even desks and chairs.
