The website map of Africa

In Africa, internet history is still in the early years. But, it's certainly happening at a lightning pace. Every day, a large number of new users are getting online for the first time, to read news, educate themselves or just to relax and have some fun. On a continent where fixed broadband only reaches 0.3% of the total population and active mobile broadband usage has increased fivefold in three years, internet users on the African continent access the internet primarily through mobile devices. And, when they access the web, they use tools such as the Opera Mini and Opera for Android browsers.

What sites are popular on the African continent? What devices are used to access these sites? In this edition of the State of the Mobile Web report, we give you a snapshot of the Opera Mini usage pattern in Africa.

Some quick insights:

  • The top place in each country, for most-visited domains, is almost exclusively reserved for Facebook or Google. Facebook is four times as prevalent in the top spot of most accessed domain for African Opera Mini users, with 41 top placements, compared to Google's 9 places.
  • Other international domains, including Wikipedia, Yahoo! and YouTube, are also up there in the top-ten lists of African Opera Mini users.
  • Local websites are, to a lesser degree, represented in the top-ten lists for each country. A closer look at these sites shows some interesting differences in the various countries. For example, Botswana has educational sites such as Botswana Educational Council very highly ranked, presumably to check enrollment and grades. Other countries, one being Libya, have local lifestyle sites like Sedty high on the most-visited lists.
  • The country with most local websites in the top-ten list is Zimbabwe, with four out of the ten spots being local sites, with national top-level-domains. Newsday, a news site, leads the pack in Zimbabwe

      Opera Mini compresses data down to as little as 10% of its original size using compression servers, during which an anonymous tally of the most-accessed websites and devices is kept.

      Smartphones are also making their way into the device lists, being led by affordable Android devices gradually replacing more basic Java phones. To view the top-ten domains in each country, click the red dot on each country, or click "Toggle data visibility" to get a continent-wide list of all countries, domains and devices in the second map.

      Growth

      In February 2014, the consumer base of the Opera mobile browsers had more than 259 million unique users. The slightly lower number can be due to seasonal variations and shorter month. The Opera Mini servers (which do not process pages from the Mobile Classic and Opera for Android browsers) served more than 168 billion pages and compressed over 16 petabytes of data for Opera Mini users. In all, 41% of the total users of the Opera mobile browsers are using smartphones to browse the web. Compared to February 2013, the total number of Opera mobile browsers users grew more than 25% year over year.

      About Opera Mini

      Opera Mini is a proxy-based web browser for mobile phones, which compresses data for data savings and allowing web surfing on slower mobile networks. This enables usage reports, based on anonymous and aggregated data accumulated from Opera Mini servers.
