We may already think of the Internet as a populous digital place. And while that's true, another truth is that the world population is continuously growing, making room for Internet users to grow as well. Despite the world population growth, there are many areas in the world that are 'offline'.
In other words, there are places in this digital world where Internet connectivity has zero presence, or even if it does, it is just not good enough. All these areas combine to make up as much as 50% of a particular country's people who're not connected to the web.
What's astonishing is that the Internet has zero presence for the general public in North Korea. It is only available to a few people there, so you can label the Internet as somewhat of the privilege there. Likewise, there are many countries where the Internet has minimal or near-to-zero presence, but are things likely to change in the future? Have a look at the infographic below to learn about Internet access rates in various countries across the globe.
