The International Telecommunications Union announced that the number of people worldwide who have broadband Internet access grew 72% in 2002. The Republic of (South) Korea, Hong Kong (China) and Canada topped the list of countries with broadband penetration. Broadband is used by 21, 15, and 11 out of every 100 inhabitants (i.e., adults & children; not penetration of households, which the above eMarketer chart illustrates) in those respective countries. eMarketer has published (subscription access only) a fine report on this, focusing on the US market.
