2.7 billion users active on Internet, ICT now more affordable

ABOUT 2.7 billion people, almost 40 per cent of the world’s populations across the seven continents of Asia, Africa, North and South America, Europe, Australia and Antarctica are now on the Internet.

Today, the world has about seven billion people, with two/third of the population now with mobile phones, according to World Bank statistics.

Indeed, the ‘2013 ICT Facts and Figure’ released by the Geneva, Switzerland based International Telecommunications Union (ITU),  informed that in 2013, there are almost as many mobile-cellular subscriptions as people in the world, with more than half in the Asia-Pacific region (3.5 billion out of 6.8 billion total subscriptions). source
