Facts and Figures 2020
While virtually all urban areas in the world are covered by a mobile-broadband network, worrying gaps in connectivity and Internet access persist in rural areas. Connectivity gaps in rural areas are particularly pronounced in least developed countries (LDCs). Not surprisingly, Internet use is consistently more widespread among young people, irrespective of region or level of development. The latest ITU data demonstrate that the roll-out of mobile-broadband networks has been slowing in 2020.
These are some of the conclusions of the latest issue of Facts and Figures 2020 - Measuring Digital Development.The report for the first time includes estimates on Internet access in small island developing states and landlocked developing countries.
The Facts and Figures series is a collection of statistical and analytical publications that provides unique insight into the state of digital development around the world.
