About a third of the world's population has access to Internet. However, more needs to be done in order to achieve Internet penetration targets set out in the Millennium Development Goals, said an International Telecommunications Union's Broadband report in September.

The report released by the ITU's Broadband Commission for Digital Development and titled State of Broadband 2012 evaluated the deployment of broadband services around the world in 170 countries.
