According to the Digital 2019 report for Chad by Hootsuite and WeAreSocial, out of a population of 15.6 million people, only 5% have access to the internet (mostly located in urban areas). In the country there are around 5.7 million mobile subscriptions, however only 4.6% of the population are mobile internet users. The country has poor internet infrastructures, with just 19% of mobile connections having broadband access (3G and 4G). According to the Mobile Connectivity Index 2018, Chad has an overall index score of 18.7% out of a maximum of 100%.
In Chad, a mere 0.8% of the population are active social media users (of which 92% login via mobile). The country’s Facebook total advertising audience amounts to 130,000 people, with much lower audiences for Instagram and Twitter (19,000 and 3,200 ,respectively), while there are 30,000 active LinkedIn profiles (data WeAreSocial). However, social media was blocked by the government during 2018, thus users must use Virtual Private Network (VPN) to access most platforms. There have been widespread speculation that the government of Chad monitored private online communications, and that activists were arrested for postings on social media.
