162 Million: 2007 Chinese Internet Usage

The new Chinese internet usage figures have come out.  There are now 162 million Chinese internet users according to the government, up from 137 million last year. 

Now we must caution that we’re not comparing like for like.  The previous figure had been based on someone who had spent an hour online per week, the new figure is on someone who accessed the internet in the previous six months

Related to this, Information Week has an interesting story on internet penetration – with an estimate of 3% rural penetration and some strong resistance to internet use.
