Maintaining social distancing during this time of corona pandemic has led to an increase in video calls, use of social media and watching online videos. According to the GSMA Mobile Gender Gap Report 2021, there has been an increase of about 82 percent in the use of mobile internet subscribers during the Corona period. The study also found that the number of female users in Bangladesh watching free mobile videos every week rose from 9 to 20 percent in 2020.

Also, the amount of awareness among women about mobile internet has increased at an unimaginable rate in the last few years. According to the survey, the awareness rate of women about mobile internet in 2020 was about 6 percent, which was 34 percent in 2016. In other words, it has increased by 32 percent in a few years. At the same time, awareness among men about mobile internet has increased by 25 percent. According to the GSMA, the awareness rate among men was 75 percent in 2020, up from 50 percent in 2016. The survey was conducted in eight small and middle income countries between October 4, 2020 and January 7, 2021.

According to the survey, mobile internet usage among women has increased by just three per cent to 19 per cent from the previous year. Where the quantity of Internet clients among men has expanded by 33%. 

Although the number of women using the Internet has increased in the pandemic, smartphone ownership has not increased. In 2019, 21 percent of grown-up ladies had a cell phone. In 2020 this number remains unchanged. At the same time, in 2020, 39 percent of adult men are using a smartphone. In 2019, this number was 36 percent.

In 2020, only 14 percent of women had a mobile money account, compared to 40 percent of men. However, this rate is much higher than that of India and Pakistan. In both countries, respectively, four to five percent of adult women are customers of such accounts.
