Six Percent of French Online

NOP Research estimates there are 2.9 million French users on the Internet, or 6 percent of the population. The Computer Industry Almanac estimates there were 2.58 million French online at the end of 1998.

A Mediangles survey of 6,850 French citizens over age 15 conducted in May of 1998 led to an estimate of 2.5 million French citizens online.

Whichever number is more accurate, one thing is for certain: When the 35 million French citizens who use Minitel are given Internet access (a plan is in the works with the help of IBM) the actual number of French online will surge.
