Facebook's 2015 State Of Connectivity report is out:
http://newsroom.fb.com/news/2016/02/state-of-connectivity-2015-a-report-on-global-internet-access/

"In order to address the barriers to connectivity, corporations, 
governments, NGOs and non-profits need to work together to continue 
gathering more accurate data on the state of global connectivity, and 
develop global standards for collecting, reporting, and distributing 
this data.

As one example, Facebook is collaborating with the Center for 
International Earth Science Information Network at Columbia University 
to produce detailed maps showing the population distribution of 20 
countries. These maps were created using new machine learning techniques 
and show the most accurate estimates of population distribution and 
settlements available to date."
