Ghana was ranked 79th in the world, with a speed of 53.28 mbps, which is the fastest in Africa.
South Africa placed 85th in the world and 2nd in Africa, while Egypt was ranked 91st in the world and and 3rd in Africa with speeds of 47.32 mbps and 42.42 mbps.

With Ghana undertaking a massive digitization drive, its internet connectivity having been ranked among the fastest in Africa should be a major boost to the government’s digitization agenda.
