Only 54% of the global population is connected today

Only 54% of the global population is connected today according to The Web Foundation. People in poorer regions, women, elderly people, and those living in remote and rural areas are far less likely to be online. This is commonly referred to as the digital divide and it has serious implications especially in times like this where kids from rural areas have difficulty keeping up to date with learning programs due to the lockdown as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. @itu #TheWebThisWeek #ICT #Digitaldivide #4IR #5gtechnology #educationtechnology #https://t.co/neMbdKd6dH
