Internet Users in China Number Nearly 80 Million
; there were only 620,000 Chinese Internet users in 1997. These numbers are from the China Internet Network Information Center. Pew says the US has 126 m users; other put Japan at 100m. A Frost & Sullivan analyst thinks the China figure is reasonable, and the Chinese market has the potential to displace both Japan and the United States, which are reaching their limits in terms of possible new users. "If you are looking at a 10- to 15-year time frame, I would say China and India are probably going to account for half of all Internet usage in the world." 11:20:49 PM
