India’s poor internet penetration – Comparison Chart!
I was trying to do a bit of comparison as to how India fares when it comes to Internet Penetration. Obviously, I did not expect to see some stellar numbers. But, when I actually compared India’s Internet penetration with its neighbouring countries I was stunned to see how badly Indian fares.
Can you imagine that Pakistan has internet penetrations of more than 11 percent as compared to India’s 4.5 percent. This was my biggest surprise. Pakistan is a poorer country than India and terrorism has taken a toll of it. Even then, Internet penetration is more than double as compared to India.
Even countries like Sri Lanka (5.8), Philippines (6.2), Indonesia (7.9) rank much higher than India. If I had included countries like Hong Kong and Singapore, India’s chart-line is not even visible as these countries have over 70 to 80 percent of people using Internet!
