Over 2 Million Italians Online

According to a report by Osservatorio Internet Italia in December of 1998, 2.6 million Italians claim to have used the Internet in the previous month. In mid-1997 the number was estimated to be 1.5 million.

Of the 2.6 million, 130,000 have purchased goods online, and 770,000 are daily users of the Internet. To compare, the Net User/Net Buyer ratio in Italy is 20:1; in the US it is 3:1.
