BBC research on Internet habits in southeast Asia
There’s been little coverage of a recent BBC World Service poll into internet usage worldwide despite its interesting findings – the main conclusion being “four in five adults questioned regard internet access as their fundamental right”.
From an Asian stand-point the research is interesting. Southeast Asia is well represented, with the 26 countries canvassed including Indonesia, Philippines and Thailand.
