Bahrain is leading the world in mobile internet user penetration, according to a StockApps data analysis.
The site has a data showing that Bahrain has a 97,87% mobile internet penetration rate, which is the largest globally.
“The Bahraini government has been investing heavily in infrastructure and technology, which has made it easier for people to get online,” says StockApps’ financial expert Edith Reads.
95.86% of the UAE’s population uses this resource for their online activity.
Like the other two, it has an extensive mobile internet infrastructure.
With a 93,59% penetration rate, Canada was the best place in the sixth position. Japan (eighth) has a penetration of 92,68%, while the UK (10th) has 92,26% penetration.
This low ranking is partly due to the US’s high cost of mobile data.
Whereas Americans pay an average of $61.07 for monthly broadband access, the average for the OECD countries is $37.78.
