At the very end of a network, there is an Internet user. There are several billion Internet users around the world. Nearly half of the world’s Internet users are in the Asia Pacific, which is the fastest growing region of Internet users.
Users get their Internet connection from access providers, fixed or wireless. This allows them to access content and use a variety of applications. There are many Internet access, content, and applications providers.
There are also many enabling organizations that help the Internet to grow seamlessly as a single, global, interoperable network: governments and regulators, industry associations, network operator groups, standards bodies, name registries, and the number registries.
APNIC belongs to an ecosystem that oversees the stability, interoperability, and growth of the global Internet. APNIC partners with many organizations to enhance service delivery and to help improve the overall operation and governance of the Internet at a global level.
