11 million people use net - 12/2000


The number of people using the Internet every month from home has leapt by almost a third over the past year, from 7.8 million in October 1999, to 11 million in September 2000.

According to the first ever, complete set of annual data on Internet usage in the UK, released by MMXI Europe, use of the Internet in the UK is growing at a phenomenal rate.

Men continue to dominate use of the Internet, but MMXI Europe figures for the past 12 months show that women are catching up. Kids aged two to 17 are the fastest growing Internet fans showing an 89% rise in Unique Visitor numbers from 1,224,000 in January to 2,312,000 in September.

This is the most comprehensive information available on Internet use in the UK, said Mari Kim Coleman, UK managing director of MMXI Europe. As the population grows and evolves, we can see people spending more time and viewing more content online. The first year of data shows how eagerly the British have embraced the Internet.
