The World Wide Wired
When the Internet is making global news headlines, it's usually for all the wrong reasons. Whether it's last year's failed Twitter revolution in Iran, or Google's ongoing dispute with the government of China, the World Wide Web often appears to be in global retreat when it clashes with authoritarian governments. But this is only part of the story. In other parts of the world, advances and innovations are allowing more people easier, cheaper and faster access to the Internet. E-commerce and communication are on the rise, as is 'e-government,' as nations experiment with different tools and techniques to make Internet usage commonplace for their citizens. RealClearWorld looked around the globe to discover which nations are leading the charge in home Internet access. So which are the world's most Internet friendly places?
