released this week estimates that by the end of this year, 2.7 billion people (39 percent of the world's population) would be using the Internet. From the report:UN's Millenium Development Goals Report
"By end of 2013, an estimated 2.7 billion people will be using the Internet, which corresponds to 39 per cent of the world's population. Growing infrastructure in information and communications technology, including mobile-broadband networks, along with social media, innovative applications and falling prices for services continue to drive Internet uptake in all regions of the world. However, major regional differences remain. In the developing world, 31 per cent of the population are online, compared to 77 per cent in the developed world. Sub-Saharan Africa, where less than 20 per cent of the population are using the Internet, remains the region with the lowest penetration rate."
