Specific data on Sri Lanka is difficult to come by but based on the aggregate data for the Asia Pacific region and extrapolated results there are:
households (39.0%) with internet access at home
households (36.0%) with a computer
households (8.9%) with a fixed broadband subscription
households (42.3%) with an active mobile broadband subscription
(91.6%) mobile cellular telephone subscriptions
(11.3%) fixed telephone subscriptions
Some of this data is incongruous and even contradictory. This is due to the limited and disparate measurement that has taken place in countries like this. As the quality and sources of data become available we will endeavour to update these statistics as soon as possible. If you have access to more accurate data for this, or any other developing market in the world, please share it with us!
Sri Lanka is one of the countries which has lower total internet advertising growth and lower mobile internet penetration.
Only a handful of countries have relatively low mobile internet penetration coupled with low growth in total internet advertising revenue. Internet speed is one of the contributing factors. Nevertheless, these countries are still expected to have mobile internet penetration rates above 60% in 2019.
