a Estimate. b Share of regional population.
World Total: 7,017,846,922 Internet Users - Latest Data: 2,405,518,376. -> Gives 34,2% of World total. (Surprising low. Who to take the blame? USA and World corruption, much police?)
Internet population (more):
Well, well, I don't know why ITU chooses to disclose the numbers the way that it does, but a reasonable way of informing the public on this has usually included a notice such as "of those who _can_ use/access the Internet". To this number we should expect Europe and USA to be quite high, much like almost 100%, exempting the usual groups, those who are too ill, one matter or another, and those who are too young or old.
Indeed, the ITU numbers seem too much idiotic when they should know better and that the current numbers may also reflect the World status, i.e., that the World is unnecessarily "pointy"!
Numbers of (implied) users from possible users, also as percentage, is the usual way for presenting these "Internet population" numbers. It is now? But this may not be a problem, rather, how much of Planet Earth area, land territory as connection of one place with people to another, has "Internet" on it, on land and elsewhere? So what is this number, in percentage, please? No, there is something strange in this World? Also, a type of technological access at sea, including a type of technology use to a given degree to this calculation such as "a certain percentage of the boats/ships at sea has a certain technology with them that allows them Internet connection at all times". More this includes technology that allows only limited access "here and there" based on other technology to land based antennas or radio-based transmission of kind, accessible some areas at sea, but not others...
That it's unnecessary to add this statistics consideration over population, i.e., the absolute population vs. the actual possible Internet population, a number that may be very obscured from a number of people. We need to follow this up to the ITU.
(One pervert consideration is that "0-year old kids" are unconsciously using the Internet by what would normally be considered criminal implants, and that this approach is enticing to ITU that, giggling wildly, ITU would like to see h*llishly more of it, word by intention.)
