Data on Internet performance and the analysis of its trend can be useful for decision
makers and scientists alike. Such performance measurements are possible using the
PingER methodology. We use the data thus obtained to quantify the difference in per-
formance between developed and developing countries, sometimes referred to as the
Digital Divide. Motivated by the recent interest of G8 countries in African development,
we particularly focus on the African countries.
