2 Billion People

CNN) – If the internet is feeling a little more crowded these days, there’s good reason.

According to a report out Tuesday, there will be 2 billion Web dwellers by the end of this year.

 

The number of internet users worldwide has doubled in the past five years according to the report, from the International Telecommunication Union.

 

Much of the big number can be attributed to internet growth in developing countries. The report said 162 million of the 226 million new Internet users in 2010 will live in those countries, where Web access is still growing.

 

But the gap between access in high-tech countries and those still developing remains big.
