Togo: From 2016 to 2019, penetration rate of internet has tripled

(Togo First) - From 7% in 2016, the internet's penetration rate in Togo has tripled to reach 21% in 2019 (with an average growth rate of 7.8% per annum over the period), corresponding to 1.71 million users. 

The data comes from recent reports released by Hootsuite and WeAreSocial. The documents highlight a significant increase between 2018 and 2019 (from 12% to 21%). The improvement was driven by better conditions of access to the internet, the expansion of mobile internet, and diversified offers spurred with new internet service providers (ISP) entering the local market. 

The reports also reveal that 11% of the Togolese population connects to the internet using mobile devices. In 2018, nearly a million (999,800) of them were recorded. 

Regarding social networks, there are currently about 650,000 Togolese (7.9% of the population) who actively use them. Most of these users are WhatsApp users. Here also, most of these users (96%) access the networks on their phones.
