Must read

According to International Telecommunication Union data, one third of the world’s population still cannot access the internet. The number of people accessing the internet has increased by 100 million in the last year.

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU), affiliated with the United Nations (UN), announced that one-third of the world’s population still does not have access to the internet.

ITU, a sub-organization within the UN dealing with technological issues, announced that the number of people with internet access has increased by 100 million people worldwide since last year, reaching 5.4 billion people. Stating that the figure in question corresponds to 67 percent of the world’s population, ITU stated that the number of people without access to the internet is 2.6 billion.

In her statement on the subject, ITU President Doreen Bogdan-Martin emphasized that “improving the Internet network is another step in the right direction”, but emphasized that permanent efforts are needed “to create a universal and fit-for-purpose network by 2030”.

According to the research, internet access will be provided in all industrial countries by 2023. Although the internet network is spreading rapidly in low-income countries, less than a third of the population can benefit from the internet.
