"Men outnumber women in terms of Internet usage in all regions of the world."

China has the biggest internet market, with 700 million users.

The global average internet speed is 7.2 megabits per second. South Korea has the fastest internet at 28.6 Mbps. To compare, Nigeria has one of the slowest speeds with 1.5 Mbps.
