The Global Impact of an Hour Without Internet

Panic! That’s the modern-day definition of losing your internet. If you think it’s a hyperbole, wait until you see the monetary loss some countries will suffer if the internet is down.

China              $179.040.000/hour

US                  $ 55.020.000/hour

UK                  $15.100.000/hour

Japan             $13.980.000/hour

Germany        $9.430.000/hour

Listed above are the top 5 countries that will suffer the most loss without an hour of internet. This only goes to show how integral the internet is to the world’s economy. It’s not only running businesses, but the internet also keeps governments, industries, schools, homes, and people connected.

Now let’s bring these numbers closer to home by taking a look at Indonesia’s e-commerce industry. 

Indonesia has been a red hot e-commerce market for its anticipated global explosion. In the last year alone, our internet users have shot 10% to 64,8% out of the total population of 264 million Indonesians. More and more people are getting connected and making transactions online, bringing projected sales of about US$13,16 billion in e-commerce alone. Divide that number by the total hours in a year and you’ll get $1,5 million: the loss the industry will suffer if we lose an hour of internet.
