Only a quarter of Africans have access to the Internet, but the region is seeing the strongest growth, according to the International Telecommunication Union's (ITU's) latest statistics.
For the first time, more than half of the world's population will be using the Internet by the end of 2018. The ITU estimates 51.2% of the global population, or 3.9 billion people, will be using the Internet this year.
Of all ITU regions, the strongest growth was reported in Africa, where the percentage of people using the Internet increased from just 2.1% in 2005 to 24.4% in 2018.
