Internet users to reach 66% of the world’s population

Internet users as a percentage of the world’s population will be 66% by 2023, up from 51% in 2018, according to Cisco‘s Annual Internet Report.

Worldwide Internet traffic has grown rapidly in recent years, driven by increasing user numbers, growing user mobility, and bandwidth-intensive applications such as video, audio, cloud-based applications, online gaming, and social networking.

In addition, it is estimated that there will be 3.6 networked devices per capita connected to IP networks in 2023, up from 2.4 networked devices per capita in 2018.

Wired networking solutions have traditionally been used to address the growing bandwidth needs of consumers and businesses.

However, Ubiquiti notes that high upfront capital requirements and ongoing operational costs, as well as the long time-to-market associated with building and installing wired network infrastructure, have largely limited the widespread deployment of these networks in underserved and underpenetrated markets.

Wireless networks have emerged as an attractive alternative to meet the broadband access needs of underserved and underpenetrated markets in both emerging and developed countries.
