The map shows the percentage of households with broadband access at the regional level in the Arctic in 2015.
Dark purple tones indicate regions with high share of households with broadband access and light purple tones indicate regions with low share of households with access to broadband. The grey colour indicates regions with no data.
Although the map shows that household’s access to broadband was rather good in the Arctic, there were still large disparities among the regions in the Russian Arctic. The lowest shares of households with broadband access were in Magadan, Chukotka, Sakha and in Nenets (Russian Federation, 31,0%, 50,5%, 55,0%, 56,0%, respectively). In Canada, Iceland, and Norway the share of households with broadband access were the highest with more than 90% of the households having broadband access.
