LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) – According to a Pew Research Center poll, as of 2015 only 22 percent of India’s adults had internet access.
Despite hosting an enormous population, much of India is without internet access, which prompted the Centre for Communication and Development Studies (CCDS) to conduct a study.
The study took place in Pune, a city that hosts over 3 million people and is considered a manufacturing and IT hub.
During their study, the CCDS discovered four problems that interfered with India’s ability to use the internet:
India does not have enough routers, Wi-Fi spots, fiber optics or servers to expand access to the internet. Even broadband connections require infrastructure that is hard to find throughout the country – and don’t even think about internet access through your cell phone.
