From the Paper:

"Afemann begins with Internet hosts statistics from Network Wizards. There were almost 20 million hosts on the Internet in July 1997. The US gets about sixty per cent of all Internet hosts while the Third World is participating with a mere three per cent. The paper goes on to say that about 82.5 per cent of worldwide Internet hosts are in the G7-countries, which make up only about ten per cent of world population. However, the most populated countries of the Third World, namely China, India, Brazil and Nigeria all together make up only 0.6% of all hosts although they possess about a third of world population. In Nigeria, the most populated country in Africa, there were only four Internet hosts in January 1997."
