Posted on: January 29, 2009

Market sources say that the internet usage increased by just around 17% in India last year.

This figure was revealed in a report by Internet & Mobile Association of India and IMRB International.

The report said that the Indian market had 45.3 million active users at the ended of September 2008.

Majority of these users are from the urban areas.

The study said: “Urban users continue to dominate Internet use contributing to 42 million of the 45 million odd users”.

IAMAI President Subho Ray added: “The growth rate was alarming compared with the rest in past years as well as with some other countries notably China where the number of Internet users are more than 250 million.”

The report also said that quite a lot of these internet users found that they had no real use for it!
