Opera Software has released its latest State of the Mobile Web report for Africa.
The report, which charts mobile internet usage and habits, makes use of both Opera Mini data and publically available information.
There were a number of interesting subjects emerging, with 25 out of 53 nations having foreign news sites as the most popular news source. Of those 25 countries, 18 have the BBC as their top news site.
Libya also saw the most growth of any African country following the nation's revolution, boasting big jumps as communications got restored. User growth increased by 323 000 percent, page views jumped by 1.8-million percent and data usage grew by 1.4 million percent.
An Opera representative confirmed the statistics, saying they had "triple-checked" them.
By contrast, South Africa experienced user growth of 35 percent, page view growth of 24 percent and data usage growth of 30 percent.
In terms of "normal" growth, Côte d’Ivoire was the standout nation, with the number of users growing 600 percent, page views by 744 percent and data by 760 percent.
Across the continent, data growth has been outpacing page-view growth, suggesting that Africans are browsing larger, more advanced websites.
The report also listed the top ten most popular mobile websites for each country, with Facebook, Google, Zamob.com, Gumtree and Zonkewap being at the top in South Africa.
The remaining five websites were Smiggle.mobi, Mxit.com, Soccerladuma.mobi, News24.com and Spbo.com.
The top ten handsets in South Africa were dominated by Nokia devices, with the 5130, X2-01, 2700c, C3 and 2330c at the top of the pile.
The Samsung E250i, Nokia X2, Nokia C1, Nokia E63 and Nokia 2690 rounded out the top ten.
