Ghana has been named the African country with the fastest internet speed. Ghana’s internet was ranked first on the African continent in a global index for fastest internet speed, ahead of South Africa and Egypt. Ghana was ranked 79th in the world, with the fastest internet speed in Africa at 53.28 Mbps.
With speeds of 47.32 Mbps and 42.42 Mbps, South Africa was ranked 85th in the world and second in Africa, while Egypt was ranked 91st in the world and third in Africa.
The global internet speed is measured by the Speedtest Global Index, which examines the internet speeds of approximately 180 countries.
With Ghana embarking on a massive digitization drive, the fact that its internet connectivity is among the fastest in Africa should provide a significant boost to the government’s digitization agenda.
