Report: Over 50% of global urban population has no broadband access

An independent research study commissioned by the Wireless Broadband Alliance to mark the inaugural 'World Wi-Fi Day' revealed that 57 per cent of the global urban population remains unconnected, with more than a third (37 per cent) living in some of the world's wealthiest cities. The report, undertaken by Maravedis Rethink Research, also found that Europe has the lowest percentage of urban unconnected citizens at 17 per cent while the Middle East and Africa has the highest proportion at 82 per cent.
