Reaching around 70% of households worldwide, the Internet is shaping the economies and habits of a growing number of countries and populations. Not only is the connectivity penetration increasing, reaching more and more places around the world, but the speed and quality of connections improves alongside. Fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) is expanding, driven by public policies in a range of countries, and it reached 41% of Internet households at the end of 2019. Yet, strong disparities remain prevalent between countries, and the gap won’t necessarily be bridged in the next 5 years.
