Inclusive Internet Index 2018: India ranks 47th

According to a report released by Facebook, India has a poor quality and low usage of internet connectivity and ranked the nation to 47th place.

  • Facebook commissioned the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) to create a comprehensive "Inclusive Internet Index," in which India secured 12th position out of 23 middle Asian countries when it comes to internet connectivity. 
  • The index which covered 91% of the world's population and 86 countries, reported that men are 33.5% more like to have internet access than the women and this gap widens in the countries having low income.
  • The index evaluated a country's Internet inclusion across four categories: availability, affordability, relevance and readiness. It said that internet connectivity will help in bringing people online and offering them life changing opportunities but there are approximately 3.8% people in the world have no access to internet.
  • Notably, the global internet connectivity has seen an upward movement as 8.3% more people are connected to the internet as compared to last year. 
  • According to Facebook, mobile Internet services are increasingly vital in many low-income countries and the cost of accessing the Internet is also falling
