Nigerian Mobile Internet Adoption is 59% of all Mobile Users

The Mobile Africa report, released this week, finds that many Africans access social media, including Facebook and Twitter, using their mobile phones.

They also use mobile for medical applications and banking, among other purposes. Lower cost mobile-capable handsets are one reason for growing mobile Internet usage. “Feature” phones that can access the Internet are now selling for less than $20, far below the $100 threshold deemed important for smartphone adoption.  

Nigeria has well over 140 million mobile phone subscribers and close to 82 million mobile Internet users, according to monthly subscriber data that has just been released by the Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC).  In other words, Nigerian mobile Internet adoption is 59 percent of all mobile users.
