Vietnam is among the Top 20 Internet-using countries in the world, according to the U.S.-based Pingdom website monitoring service.

With 24.3 million Internet users, Vietnam stood at No. 20 on the list, right after Canada, which has 25.1 million users, Pingdom said in a report published last week.

There are 1.8 billion Internet users in the world and the Top 20 countries account for nearly 82 percent of the figure, it said. China takes the top spot with almost twice as many Internet users as the United States, who ranks second on the list.

In five to 10 years, the order in the Top 20 list will be quite different as Internet penetration in countries like India, Brazil and the Philippines is on the rise, the company said.
