The number of active home Internet users continues its growth in a majority of the 11 countries tracked by Nielsen//NetRatings. Yet the overall growth rate stagnated in January due to a decrease in active users in a few countries.
Brazil continued to lose traction with active Internet users, experiencing a 1.41 percent slip. After closing the year with a slight increase to its Internet user base in December, Germany’s active users slipped just over half a percent. While France gained the lead in European broadband accounts last year, January showed a loss of 132,724 active users. Declines were also experienced in Sweden and the United States.
Nielsen//NetRatings uses a sampling methodology applied worldwide which allows for aggregation of data on a regional and global basis.
