Wiring the World by National Geographic Society
While it may seem that the Internet is boundless, much of the world is still without an Internet Protocol (IP) address. This two-page visual illustrates, by continent, IP addresses, at the end of 2011. The map quickly makes it clear the contrast between areas that are and are not within reach of IP addresses. Only one third of the global population was using the Internet at the end of 2011. However, as economies grow, so do the number of IP addresses.
