This chart indicates, how far back
India and China still are in the use of modern communication
technology. Far less then 10% of India's population has access to the
Internet, and only about 35% of China's population - as compared to 80%
of the population in the United States of America.
Contrary to popular belief, particularly
in the US, the United States is not the most Internet-connected
population of the world. There are many European populations which have
significantly better access to the Internet than the population in the
United States. In Sweden, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway and
Iceland more than 90% of the Population has (usually high-speed) access
to the Internet.
