 Many Parts of the World Still Cannot Afford the Internet,says Queen
Queen Elizabeth II has praised the achievements in the field of science and technology but pointed out that the Internet remained an "unaffordable option" for much part of the world.

The British monarch made the reference while delivering her Commonwealth Day message that is set to be a part of the annual Observance of Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey.

"Advances in telecommunications are having a marked economic effect on people from developing nations in the Commonwealth, helping to transform small to medium-sized businesses," the Daily Express quoted the Queen, as head of the Commonwealth, as saying.

"The internet is playing an important part in helping to nurture these fledgling markets but, as yet, it still remains an unaffordable option for too many of our Commonwealth citizens," she added. (ANI)
