CEO Miniwatts Marketing Group Miniwatts de Colombia Ltda regarding internet
users had as introduction as follows:
The Internet is always changing and growing, as everybody knows. However
the current situation involves changes that are much more complex and that
require a more detailed analysis. From our perspective, the four main
points that should be examined are the current high growth rate of Internet
users world-wide, the increased use of smart-phones for Internet access,
the mobile friendly web design, and the evolution of the social web.
Regarding world Internet users, our database indicates 3,073,047.787
confirmed users in the world for December 2014. The penetration rate of the
Internet in the world, equivalent to the percentage of the 2015 population
that has access to the Internet, is 42.3%

1,486, 815. This gives a percentage penetration of 6.5% and represent just
0.5% of Africans penetration rate. However, there is a
future given the fact that the about 20miilion Cameroonians use mobile
phones. There is a rapid growth in the use of mobile internet as well as
mobile websites. The penetration
