Active Internet Users by Country, February 2004

  |  March 24, 2004   |  Comments

The at-home global active Internet universe for a number of selected countries grew by more than 2.8 million users from January 2004 to February.

Nielsen//NetRatings found that the overall at-home global active Internet universe for a number of selected countries grew less than 1 percent from January 2004 to February 2004. Hong Kong exhibited the largest growth rate at over 8 percent, while Japan added the most active Internet users over the month.

Nielsen//NetRatings has expanded its tracking system to include Internet applications, and calculates active users as the number of people that actually go online in a given month, rather than the number of people with access.
