    ICT Facts &Figures“This year governments are making their final assessment of the UN Millennium DevelopmentGoals (MDGs), which global leaders agreed upon in the year 2000. Over the past 15 years

    the ICT revolution has driven global development in an unprecedented way. Technological

     progress, infrastructure deployment, and falling prices have brought unexpected growth in ICT

    access and connectivity to billions of people around the world. In 2015 there are more than 7

    billion mobile cellular subscriptions worldwide, up from less than 1 billion in 2000. Globally 3.2

    billion people are using the Internet of which 2 billion are from developing countries. ICTs will

     play an even more significant role in the post 2015 development agenda and in achieving future

    sustainable development goals as the world moves faster and faster towards a digital society.

    Our mission is to connect everyone and to create a truly inclusive information society, for which

    we need comparable and high-quality data and statistics to measure progress.”

    • By end 2015, there are morethan 7 billion mobile cellularsubscriptions, corresponding

    to a penetration rate of 97%,up from 738 million in 2000

    • Between 2000-2015, globalInternet penetration grew 7

    fold from 6.5% to 43%

    • Mobile broadband is themost dynamic marketsegment; globally, mobile-

    broadband penetrationreaches 47% in 2015, a value

    that increased 12 timessince 2007

    • The proportion of householdswith Internet access at homeincreased from 18% in 2005

    to 46% in 2015

    • Fixed-broadband uptake isgrowing at a slower pace,with a 7% annual increase

    over the past three years andreaching 11% penetration by

    end 2015

    • The proportion of the

    population covered by a 2Gmobile-cellular network grewfrom 58% in 2001 to 95%

    • In 2014, in 111 countriesthe price of a basic (fixedor mobile) broadband plancorresponds to less than5% of average GNI percapita, thus meetingthe BroadbandCommission target

    •  The global averageprice of a basic fixed-broadband plan (52PPP$) is 1.7 times higherthan the average priceof a comparablemobile-broadbandplan (30 PPP$)

    • In developing countries,average monthly fixed-broadband prices (inPPP$) are 3 timeshigher than in developedcountries; mobile-broadband prices aretwice as expensive as indeveloped countries

    • Fixed-broadbanduptake remains slow in

    developing countriesand particularly in LDCs,where penetration ratesare now at 7% and lessthan 1%, respectively.

    • While the prices of fixed-broadband plans dropped

    sharply between 2008and 2011, especially indeveloping countries, theyhave been stagnatingsince then and evenincreased slightlyin LDCs

     Broadband now affordable in 111 countries

    with mobile-broadband less expensive than fixed-broadband plans
