The report also found growth in online access is lowering and the more than 50% of the world’s population is still offline. Commission was set up in 2010 and added the milestone of 4 billion people as online internet users was not likely before 2020. Access growth rate is expected to slow to 8.1% from 8.6% in 2014. Till 2012, growth rates had been in double digits. By the close of this year, 3.2 billion people will have some form of regular access to the Internet, up from 2.9 billion in 2014. That is 43.4 per cent of the world's population, still far short of a U.N. target of 60 per cent by 2020.In the developing world, 25 per cent fewer women than men had Internet access, a number that rises to 50 per cent in parts of sub-Saharan Africa.
