Other results from the study suggest that broadband is less affordable globally this year. Comparing countries included in both DQL20 and DQL21, people will have to work 11% more (25 minutes more) in 2021 to be able to afford broadband internet.
The worst internet in the world is the least accessible. Residents of some countries like Nigeria, Ivory Coast and Mali have to work about a week to be able to afford the internet.

The 2021 DQL survey covers a population of more than 6.9 billion and includes five main pillars and 14 indicators of support that provide a comprehensive measure. The research is based on open source information from the UN, World Bank, Freedom House, International Communications Union, and other sources.
