`Everyone on Earth will be online by 2020`

Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt has predicted that everybody in the world will be on the Internet within seven years.



Washington: Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt has predicted that everybody in the world will be on the Internet within seven years.

Schmidt wrote Saturday on his Google+ account that `for every person online, there are two who are not.`

"By the end of the decade, everyone on Earth will be connected," he added.

According to an English news website, Schmidt followed up with a related thought on Sunday.

"Think about how great the Internet is with 2B users. Now think about how amazing it will be when 5B come online in a decade. #NewDigitalAge," he said.

But some of Schmidt`s own followers took exception, the report said.

A Google+ user pointed out that millions in Africa who can`t even get enough food to eat or the natives in South America who have no idea what technology is cannot be connected by Internet.
