Egypt’s Internet market is continuing to grow rapidly.

About 500,000 new customers were added in April, according to a new Ministry of Communications and Information Technology report. Interestingly, however, the number of mobile Internet users actually decreased, falling by 2.5 percent to 30.68 million (down from 31.47 million the month before).

At the same time, the number of USB modem Internet users jumped by 60.2 percent.

Egypt had about 39.6 million Internet customers in April – making it the largest such market in the MENA region.
