What is internet penetration? 

The Internet Penetration Rate corresponds to the percentage of the total population of a given country or region that uses the Internet.

Is Zimbabwe’s Internet Penetration Growing?

Well, according to data from Internet World Stats, Zimbabwe’s internet population has grown by 11,567% between 2000-2020.

While Africa accounts for 15.0% of the world’s population, only 6.2% of the World’s Internet subscribers are Africans.

Compared to the Zimbabwean population of 14 million, 8.4 million Zimbabweans are online. This is equivalent to 56.5% of the population. 

These figures are very positive as internet penetration above 50% of the population means the technology infrastructure of a country is improving.
