Thanks Jane,

there are couple of papers that would be of interest:

1. Exploring and Analysing the African Web Ecosystem,
http://sathiaseelan.org/docs/10.1145@3213897.pdf - that just got published.
2. Deep Diving into Africa’s Inter-Country Latencies,
http://sathiaseelan.org/docs/africa-internet.pdf - published earlier this
year

Regards
