The 'Internets' From a Global Perspective

The 'Internets' From a Global Perspective

Thanks to Chris Harrison, we can now get a visual of Internet connectivity around the globe. Chris used data from The Dimes Project which revealed 89,344 connections to create his world map masterpiece. As you can see, North America and Europe have way more connections than Africa or South America. Chris says:

"It is important to note that this only reflects density of connections, and not usage. Hundreds of people may utilize a single connection in an internet cafe, often the only form of connectivity people have access to in developing nations."

I wonder if there's a way to access Internet usage data from around the globe as Internet connectivity is most likely driven by commerce, economics and the need for technological integration. Therefore, it would be interesting to see how many developing countries have Internet access, even if it is limited. via Neatorama
