Google recently spent around a million dollars researching 61 countries to find out which country uses the internet the best. The study measured which countries use the internet in the most optimised so that it effects peoples lives in a productive and useful way.
To answer this question a team spent a whole year researching things like the Internets effect on politics, social issues, economics and communications in these countries. Who came out on top? Sweden. Where did Zimbabwe rank? 60/61. Go Bob!
The study called “Web Index” was actually overseen by the guy credited for the invention of the web, Tim Brenners-Lee.
A very interesting little factoid is that worldwide, 1 in 3 people use the internet, BUT, that doesn’t mean it’s even across countries because only 1 one in 6 people in Africa use the Internet.
