Latvia, Lithuania top worldwide Internet list

RIGA - Latvia and Lithuania have some of the highest numbers of youngsters of any country who’ve grown up surrounded by the Internet, a new report shows. New research from the UN’s International Telecommunication Union (ITU), show how the Baltic States boast the highest numbers of 15-24 year olds who’ve grown up around the Internet, qualifying as ‘digital natives.’

Nearly 14 percent of youngsters in Lithuania have grown up online, while up to 12 percent done so in Latvia.

Research also shows that out of a global population of seven billion, 363 million have grown up “surrounded by, and use the tools and toys of, the digital age.” By the end of 2013, 40 percent of the world will be online, but 1.1 billion households, or 4.4 billion people, still remain unconnected.

Around 250 million additional people came online in 2012, figures also show.

Brahima Sanou, director of ITU’s Telecommunication Development Bureau, which produced the research, said: “Young people are the most enthusiastic adopters and users of ICTs. They are the ones who will shape the direction of our industry in the coming decades, and their voices need to be heard.”
