Billions of People Do Not Have Internet

4.3 Billion is the best guess.

It’s often forgotten by us “First World” people that there are many – the majority of the worlds population in fact – That have never “gone online”. I’ve wanted to repost a map I saw in National Geographic showing a world map done in black with every IP address represented by a light.  It is here on an interactive page on National Geographics website. The world is mostly without internet, except for all of the developed areas.

This info-graphic from  brings home the idea. The internet is not ubiquitous.
