Internet Top 20 Countries

Dear Reader,
Slowly but surely we are updating the Internet World Stats. It is a big job because there is lots of information generated all the time. Some people call it Big Data. The Wikipedia defines it as is a broad term for data sets so large or complex that traditional data processing applications are inadequate to handle.

Citing Wikipedia, Big Data include analysis, capture, data curation, search, sharing, storage, transfer, visualization, and information privacy. The term often refers simply to the use of predictive analytics or other certain advanced methods to extract value from data, and seldom to a particular size of data set. Accuracy in big data may lead to more confident decision making. And better decisions can mean greater operational efficiency, cost reduction and reduced risk.

Below you will find information and analysis about the top twenty countries in the Internet according to the number of users. So without further delay, kindly read on and enjoy this new issue of the IWS Newsletter.

Next comes a group of 3 countries with almost 336 million Internet users. They are Brazil, Japan and Russia. Internet use in these three countries is well established and mature. Japan has over 90% Internet penetration.

Another interesting fact is that the Top 20 countries comprise 73.9% of all the Internet users in the world. By the way, Internet users is a good example of the Pareto Principle, also called the 80/20 rule. About 80% of all the Internet users is contained in 20% of the world countries.
