New UN report gives the world new information about how many people actually got no internet connection. Over 4 Billion people are still not online and therefore not able to read and understand more of whats going on in this world. The net was born as a place where free information was the essential to the world wide web launch.

Over 57 percent are still not online

According to a report by the UN Broadband Commission, shows that 57 percent of the world’s population – about 4.2 billion people on this globe, still have no access to the Internet.

Lowers Expectations

It is clear that the geographical position plays a big role in availability. In fully developed countries, there is around 80% that have access to the Internet, while in the poorest countries in the world, the figure of 6.7%.

The Commission’s original goal was to have 60 percent of world population on-line by the end of 2015, but now they have turned down the expectations and believe that the number can not be reached until at least 2021.

The reason is the low percentage of people online in developing countries. According to the Commission is only 34 per cent of households online.

Saturation of the World

In the report it also appears that 121 countries will achieve “saturation” on mobile data, and further growth in these countries will depend on 4G and mobile payment platforms.

The Commission also writes that it will be around 7 billion mobile subscriptions by the end of this year, it will see 97 subscriptions per 100 people.
