Strong growth in Internet users in the Middle East and Africa

At internetworldstats.com, you can learn about Internet Usage Statistics across the world. Studying the statistics, I noticed, for example, these 2 things:

A: Strong growth in Internet users in the Middle East and in Africa
The Middle East and Africa are the 2 regions in the world with the highest growth in Internet users. Between 2000 and 2008, the number of Internet users grew by 1,296% in the Middle East and by 1,100% in Africa. Having a look at the statistics for Africa, I noticed that the Seychelles is the place in Africa with the highest percentage of Internet users. 4 out of the every 10 people at the Seychelles, which is a nation of 116 islands in the Indian Ocean east of mainland Africa, use the Internet. Compared to the Democratic Republic of Congo, for example, the difference is huge. In the Democratic Republic of Congo, just 0.3% of the population use the Internet.

B: North America has the highest percentage of Internet users in the world
North America is the place in the world with the highest percentage of Internet users. 73.1% of the population use the Internet.
