Antarctica frozen out of internet revolution

Who's got the most interweb superhighways?

High performance access to file storage

North America and Europe still dominate the internet, despite Asia's economic furnaces in China and India.

Research by clumsily-named geolocation outfit IPligence found the US racked up more than 55 per cent of total global IP addresses. Europe tails it with about 21 per cent, while Asia, by far the biggest and most populous continent, accounts for just over 14 per cent.

No impact has been made on the digital divide afflicting the world's most impoverished nations. Africa has only 40 million addresss, or just over 1.5 per cent of the internet.

Bringing up the rear are the luddites of Antarctica, with a pathetic 15,620 IP addresses, 0.001 per cent of the world total.

More details from the report, and meaningless maps, are here. ®
