Guyana’s Access to the Internet Steadily Increasing

The number of Guyanese with internet access is steadily increasing especially following recent actions by the Ministry of Public Telecommunications. According to its Minister Cathy Hughes,

 “The Internet penetration rate in Guyana today stands at 305,007 persons. That means that 39.6 percent of the current population of this country are using and connected to the Internet. It might sound low, but it’s over 300,000 persons.”  

She went on to describe the work of her Ministry since its inception over two years ago saying;

“We’ve connected all the Ministries at this point in time. Over 150 government agencies, over 195 schools and we’ve created and opened in communities over 125 ICT hubs where there’s free Internet access,”
