Webinar recording: The State of Mobile Internet Connectivity Report 2022
In this webinar recording, learn about the latest trends in global connectivity from The State of Mobile Internet Connectivity Report 2022.
By the end of 2021, 4.3 billion people were using mobile internet – an increase of almost 300 million since the end of 2020. But there’s still a long way to go to close the ‘usage gap’ which now stands at 3.2 billion people. In this session, Claire Sibthorpe shared the key findings from this year’s ‘The State of Mobile Internet Connectivity Report’. This was followed by an interactive discussion with key author Kalvin Bahia from GSMA Intelligence and Claire Sibthorpe, Head of Connected Society and Connected Women at the GSMA.
With 95% of the world’s population covered by a mobile broadband network, addressing the usage gap – the 40% of the global population covered by a mobile broadband network but not using the internet – is the main challenge. While important progress has been achieved in increasing internet adoption and usage, there is a growing digital divide between and within countries. Learn more about these trends in connectivity in low- and middle-income countries, the barriers people face to using mobile internet and what factors affect this.
