Top 10 Internet Addicted Country by braveboy64(m): 9:38am On Oct 12, 2018
2. Brazil

Free WiFi Spots: 559,490

Mobile Cellular Subscriptions (per 100 people): 118

Individuals Using the Internet (% of Population): 61

Brazil dominates when it comes to WiFi spots with over 550,000 of them across its huge landmass. These WiFi spots provide internet access for tens of millions of impoverished citizens who otherwise would be separated from one of mankind’s greatest innovations. The country has a long way to go toward making internet readily available to everyone, but until then WiFi will be the common go-to .

1. United States

Free WiFi Spots: 515,925

Mobile Cellular Subscriptions (per 100 people): 123

Individuals Using the Internet (% of Population): 76

The United States invented the internet. It’s home to the world’s greatest tech hubs, and is where the latest and greatest internet technologies are birthed, from 4G LTE in 2010 to gigabit internet in recent years that allows you to instantly watch YouTube videos at 4K resolution and 60 frames per second. It was only natural that it would top this list.4. Russia

Free WiFi Spots: 311,586

Mobile Cellular Subscriptions (per 100 people): 159

Individuals Using the Internet (% of Population): 73

Russia is one very cold place, so it’s no surprise that many of its inhabitants rely on a nice, warm gaming PC for enjoying the evenings. It’s a particularly mobile friendly part of the world, with over 300,000 WiFi spots and 159 cellular subscriptions per 100 people. Frankly, it should be #1 if not for the millions of Russians who live in desolate areas that don’t even have internet access.

3. Macau

Free WiFi Spots: 292

Mobile Cellular Subscriptions (per 100 people): 322

Individuals Using the Internet (% of Population): 82

322 mobile cellular subscriptions… that’s more than three per person on average. I don’t know what’s going on in Macau, but its flag suggests that it’s growing some kind of five-star illegal narcotics.6. Bahrain

Free WiFi Spots: 4,034

Mobile Cellular Subscriptions (per 100 people): 210

Individuals Using the Internet (% of Population): 98

Tying Luxembourg with 98% of its population using the internet, Bahrain is a surprisingly internet friendly place and that’s probably because it’s one of the major financial hubs in the East.

5. United Arab Emirates

Free WiFi Spots: 65,606

Mobile Cellular Subscriptions (per 100 people): 215

Individuals Using the Internet (% of Population): 91

Now that we’re in the top five we’re looking at some seriously internet addicted countries, the first of which is the United Arab Emirates. This country has quite a huge divide between rich and poor, with oil companies bringing in billions of dollars for the country. As a result, its internet stats are some of the healthiest in the world, only held back its low number of WiFi spots.8. Saudi Arabia

Free WiFi Spots: 208,932

Mobile Cellular Subscriptions (per 100 people): 149

Individuals Using the Internet (% of Population): 74

The middle east doesn’t fare well when it comes to internet adaptability, but there are two exceptions to the rule. One we’ll talk about in a second, and the other is Saudi Arabia. The sword on its flag might indicate that it’s still living in pre-BC times, but it has more WiFI spots than just about any other country in the world. I wouldn’t mess with them.

7. Hong Kong

Free WiFi Spots: 4,750

Mobile Cellular Subscriptions (per 100 people): 241

Individuals Using the Internet (% of Po10. South Korea

Free WiFi Spots: 59,052

Mobile Cellular Subscriptions (per 100 people): 121

Individuals Using the Internet (% of Population): 93

South Korea is a technologically savvy country known for its cultural appreciation of competitive video games and posting Instagram photos of every meal. It’s surprising that it didn’t rank higher, but 10th out of 195 countries is quite good when you think about it.

9. United Kingdom

Free WiFi Spots: 58,400

Mobile Cellular Subscriptions (per 100 people): 120

Individuals Using the Internet (% of Population): 95

When English people aren’t busy drinking tea, you can bet they’re on the internet doing something. The UK is one of the rainiest and overcast places in the world, after all.pulation): 87

Hong Kong is, generally speaking, a very prosperous place where well-off people live. While the number of people using the internet in the country is lower than most countries on this list, those who do on average have 2.4 cellular subscriptions at their disposal. Maybe they drop a lot of phones and don’t want to replace them, or maybe there’s a lot of drug dealing going on. We’re not certain, but we do know that 241 mobile cellular subscriptions per 100 people is the second highest of any country in the world.

Why is it called internet addiction? This rating could be named like "top 10 countries with developed Internet usage". Actually, there are so many reasons to develop it more and more: social media, cool services, games like https://papasgames.io/, music, news, and so on.
