China has 132 million Internet users

Posted on Thursday, January 04 2007 @ 06:36:53 CET by

Government-sponsored Chinese news agencies report China now has 132 million Internet users, which is 30 percent more than last year. 52 million (about 39 percent) of them are using broadband Internet connections.
China now boasts more Internet users than any other country in Asia, followed by Japan with 86 million. Larger than the Internet populations of Africa, Australia, and the Middle East combined, China's 132 million makes up over 30 percent of the total Internet population of Asia, which is approximately 387 million. The total global number of Internet users is thought to be just over a billion—less than a sixth of the planet's inhabitants.

Although Internet access isn't quite ubiquitous yet in China, other communications technologies are extremely pervasive. According to statistics provided by the Chinese embassy, the number of cell phone users in China is greater than 430 million, which means that the country could potentially account for almost half of all cell phone purchases around the world.
In the U.S. there are about 207 million Internet users.

Even more amazing when one considers where China was even ten years ago.
