Internet to hit 2 billion users this year

Posted on Thursday, October 21 2010 @ 04:00:15 CEST by


A study carried out by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) estimates over 2 billion people will be online by the end of the year, double as much as five years ago.
"162 million of the 226 million new Internet users in 2010 will be from developing countries, where Internet users grow at a higher rate," ITU said in a statement. "By the end of 2010, 71 percent of the population in developed countries will be online compared to 21 percent of the population on developing countries."

In 2009, 1.4 billion people were logging on, but this year that number has already reached 1.6 billion. Why such rapid growth? First of all, there has been an increase in the number of broadband subscriptions; by the end of the year, 8 percent of the globe will have access to high-speed Internet connections.
