Internet use in Europe is also patchy, though still much higher than in many countries of Africa or Asia, with several countries having over 40 percent of the population never having used the internet (Portugal, Greece, Bulgaria and Romania), while countries such as Finland, the Netherlands and Norway all have fewer than 10 percent of the population who claim not to use the internet (Anon, 2012 ).
