In the EU, there are significant differences among Member States with regard to access to the internet in rural areas, cities, towns, and suburbs (see Figure 2). In most cases, people living in rural areas do not have the same level of access to the internet as those living in cities. This difference is especially significant in Bulgaria, Ireland, Greece, Spain, Croatia, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania, Hungary, Portugal, Romania, and Slovakia − countries that have a significant rural population.
