Internet Usage Trends

Dear Reader,
This is our first Newsletter of the year 2016 and I wish to send our best greetings to our over 23,267 readers worldwide and to welcome the new subscribers. I also wish to thank the readers that write to us with questions, suggestions and pointing out errors and mistakes. We appreciate your messages and feedback. Unfortunately, we cannot give reply to them all, but be assured that we read them all.

The year 2015 statistics were updated for November 30, 2015 and the final figure estimated is 3,366,261,156 Internet users, with a 46.4% world penetration rate.

The Internet statistics for the main six world regions were also updated for November 30, 2015. Facebook subscriber data were also updated for November 15, 2015 for most of the world countries. After this general data update, we got curious about the evolution of the Digital Divide in the world, something very related to Internet growth. For this analysis, we prepared the table you can see below, together with some of our observations.

Responsive Web Design (RWD)

The following table shows the world Internet growth between Dec 2000 and Nov 2015 in the following World Geographic Regions.

From the above table, several facts become evident about the Internet's current situation and growth in the world: the region with the highest number of users is Asia, with a 40.2% penetration rate, and high digital divide.

The region with the highest growth rate is Africa, however, it still has a very low Internet penetration rate of 28.6%, indicating a high digital divide.

The region with the highest Internet penetration rate is North America, 87.9%, indicating a very low digital divide.
