Internet Statistics Update

In Dec 06 I posted my first “Internet Statistics Update”. Today is the next installment. What we see here is a 3-6% increase in internet usage and broadband connections. While I did not include China and Hong Kong in my previous post, it is interesting to note that China is far exceeding the predictions of 2000 in internet and broadband connections. This is possibly because technology is making them cheaper or simply that the Chinese are becoming more global.

I think the question is simple here: What are we doing to reach the internet users? We know that there is an increasing number of “eyeballs” looking at computer screens as opposed to listening to radio or television. The internet MUST be part of any integrated mediastrategy! (DH)

    Mr. Daniel Henrich,

    I am a reporter for The Cambodia Daily in Phnom Penh. Could you provide me a contact email? I’d like to shoot a few questions your way about the Internet industry in Cambodia, trends, saturation, etc.

    Hope this is possible.

    I wonder where I can find all your source reference to get this information. It would be better if you could provide me the reliable source. Actually, I need this statistic to use for my academic report. Hope you are kindly understanding! Look forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you,
