Nielsen//NetRatings found that the overall at-home global active Internet universe for 12 selected countries barely changed from July 2004 to August 2004. Roughly 157,000 active users dropped off the Internet over the month, representing a decline of just half of one percent.
The United States broke its losing streak, posting a gain for the first time since March. Japan added the most active users for the month, while Switzerland exhibited double-digit growth.
Italy lost the most active users, resulting in the highest percentage loss for the month. The UK dropped roughly half of the users that were added in July.
