Royal Pingdom this time has come up with a study about internet users based up on their time zones. It indicates, how many of them in 2.4 billion internet users in the world are awake when you’re using internet.

For example, if you live in central Europe you share time zone with millions of people in Africa. And if you live in Australia, chances are you check the morning news on your tablet at the same time as many others in Japan.

Few interesting points, worth to note:

  • China is said to be the world’s biggest contributor in terms of internet users with 538 million users.
  • The average global internet penetration rate is said to be 34.3%.
  • Also, top 10 time zones which have passed the 100 million mark in terms of  internet users are; UTC -6, -5, -3, +1, +2, +3, +5, +7, +8 and +9.
  • Top contributors of UTC +1 are; Germany (67 million), France (52 million) and Nigeria (48 million internet users and 30% internet penetration). In addition, internet penetration of UTC +1 is unevenly distributed with low numbers like 5% in Cameroon and 92% in Norway.
  • Most internet users among 2.4 billion users fall under UTC +8 time zone with internet penetration of 41%, which mostly sees the improvement in coming years.
  • The internet penetration of UTC +9 is accounted for 68%, where the numbers are mostly contributed by places of large populations and high internet penetration rates such as, Japan and South Korea.
  • The smallest contributor of internet users worldwide is Southern Sudan with 100 and Christmas Island with 464 internet users.
  • The study highlights that the new internet users emerge from east timezone from UTC +5 to +9. +5 that is India accounts for 8% internet users.
  • A little more than 40% of all the internet users can be found in just two time zones, UTC +8 and UTC +1. And just as the east will continue to grow in terms of users, Africa and South America will also add up, adding to the total in the time zones they cover.

Note: Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) is a term originally referring to mean solar time at the Royal Observatory, Greenwich in England. It is now often used to refer to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) when this is viewed as a time zone, although strictly UTC is an atomic time scale which only approximates GMT in the old sense. It is also used to refer to Universal Time (UT), which is the astronomical concept that directly replaced the original GMT.
