Regional - Internet - The Americas - 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. Since the Internet was opened to the public in the 1990s, the USA has led the world in Internet development and usage. As the home of Microsoft, Google and AOL, the USA dominates the world in Internet information and applications. Almost 75% of global Internet host computers attached to the World Wide Web are located in the USA. However, since 2001 it has been sliding in global Internet rankings. The number of households surfing the Internet in Canada continues to increase, however growth rates remain relatively stable largely because the majority of households are already online. In contrast, all evidence in Latin America, points to a continuing and rapid growth in the number of Internet users. This report provides an overview and statistics on the Internet market for the Americas, including the USA, Canada and Latin America.
