According to a Internet Live Stats data, India, which has one of the fastest growing internet populations, witnessed a user one-year change of 30 percent. The country stood at the number one spot.

Coming at the second spot was the African nation of Mali which witnessed user one-year change of 18.6 percent. The nation was closely followed by Lesotho at the third spot with a figure of 18.1 percent. In fact, taking into account the top ten countries in the list, barring India and Vanuatu, all the rest were from Africa.
