​​​​​​​​​​​​ITU estimates that approximately 5.4 billion people – or 67 per cent of the world’s population – are using the Internet in 2023. This represents an increase of 45 per cent since 2018, with 1.7 billion people estimated to have come online during that period. However, this leaves 2.6 billion people still offline.​


Aggregates are based on the ITU regions, the LDC, LLDC and SIDS composition, and income groups according to the World Bank classification​.
