“Internet Users Now 3.2billion” – World Bank

The World Bank has said that the number of internet users globally had more than tripled in 10 years, from 1billion in 2015 to about 3.2billion by the end of 2015.

The World Bank disclosed this in its Report for 2016, made available during the presentation of the World Development Report (WDR 2016 ) on Digital Dividends.

The report revealed that more households in Nigeria and other developing nations owned a mobile phone rather than have access to electricity or clean water.

According to the report, an estimated 70 percent of the bottom fifth of the population in developing nations could boast of owning a cell phone.
