Regional - Internet - Asia Pacific - 2006

Synopsis

Archived report. This report was archived in 2008 and has not been updated since. The number of Internet users has more than doubled since the year 2000, and now, in 2006, it is available to over one billion people worldwide. Asia-Pacific is the world’s largest regional Internet market, measured by users. Internet development in Asia alone has been dominated for a long time by Japan, Hong Kong, South Korea, Singapore and Taiwan. China has joined this group. The developing economies of the region have had considerably slower growth, having had to deal with high access costs, poor infrastructure and the slow pace of deregulation. This in turn has limited the potential for achieving the social and economic benefits of a country being online. This report provides an overview and statistics on the Internet market for the Asia–Pacific region, including Asia, Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific.
