This study provides an overview of digital infrastructure in Africa and compares it with digital infrastructure in the rest of the world. The scope is limited to the components of digital infrastructure related to digital trade. In particular, the focus is internet infrastructure (notably, broadband infrastructure), data-related infrastructure (encompassing IXPs, data centres and cloud computing) and delivery-related or logistics infrastructure (such as the postal network). This study also covers elements that are likely to affect digital trade, such as digital payment systems and digital platforms.
