An Interesting Find on Internet Stats
« on: September 16, 2006, 09:50:30 PM »
I found an interesting website that has internet statistics.

http://www.internetworldstats.com/stats.htm

The penetration for North American internet usage is 68.6% while Europe is only a surprising 36.4%. I expected Europe to be around 50%. The fastest growing areas are the Middle East followed closely by Africa.

The internet only has 16% penetration in the world population though. I thought it was close to 20%.

I never thought of that Borek. That explains why it was low.

Australia is only 0.5% of the population! Wow we really are small, LOL!
