Countries Without Internet 2024

The Internet is so accessible in most places that we rarely consider areas in the world that have zero access.

Nearly 3 billion people, or 37% of the world's population, have no access to the Internet.

Only around 7% of people living in the Sudan use the Internet. While the percentage of internet users in Sudan is increasing, the country is still behind in expanding broadband internet connections.

90% of people living in Somalia and Burundi don't use the Internet. Those who do have access to the internet experience low fixed-network broadband speeds of 7 Mbit/second.

Burundi is the poorest country in the world and only has around 754,000 internet users.

A person requires authorization from the North Korean government to use the Internet. Internet in North Korea is mostly restricted to the government and visitors.

Internet usage in the countries of Togo, Rwanda, Tajikistan, Tanzania, Turkmenistan, Comoros, and Niger is increasing, though in most regions is still inaccessible.

While Pakistan is 7th in the world for internet users, the country has imposed unannounced internet blackouts to quell civil unrest and stop protests.

Cuba uses the ALBA-1 cable to Venezuela to access the Internet. The blackouts and lack of Internet are due to government regulations and sanctions from the United States that don't allow undersea cable from Florida to Cuba.

Vietnam is 7th in the world for internet users in the world, but the usage is limited. It's illegal in Vietnam to post anything online that harms national security or opposes" the government, which is rather broad.

73.7% of China's population uses the Internet regularly. The Chinese government has banned the use of certain websites, including Reddit, some Wikipedia entries, some Google services, and websites that the Communist Party deems spiritual pollution.

Most Belarus citizens have internet access, but it's restricted. A website must register with the Belarus government or face blocking.

  • Indicates individuals who have used the internet from any location in the 3 months prior to being surveyed. The internet use could be via a computer, mobile phone, personal digital assistant, videogame console, digital TV, etc.
  • Freedom House scores internet freedom using a scale ranging from 0 (least free) to 100 (most free), evaluating factors including obstacles to access, limits on content, and violations of user rights.
  • Countries marked as 'Not Free' by Freedom House, whose low scores indicate severe restrictions on internet access, can be categorized as lacking the internet.
