Research by Freedom House has revealed the best and worst places in the world for internet freedom.
Unsurprisingly, China was the worst place in the world for internet freedom, followed by Iran, Syria, Ethiopia and Cuba.
North Korea, where the entire internet is banned to ordinary citizens, was not included in the survey due of a lack of data, but is presumably the only country with a worse internet freedom record than China.
Common forms of internet censorship in these countries include blocking entire websites, blocking access to specific content about human rights, and blocking messages from being sent on social media if they are critical of the government regime.
On the flipside, Iceland was the best place in the world for internet freedom, followed by Estonia, Canada, Germany and the US.
