India became the World's Third Largest Internet User

Aug 24, 2013 11:42 IST

Global digital measurement and analytics comScore stated in its report that India is the world’s third largest Internet user after China and USA. At present, India has almost 74 million Internet users which is a 31 percent increase over March 2012. Significantly, three-fourths of its online population is under 35.

The numbers are lower than other recent estimates, possibly reflecting comScore’s methodology that only factors in PC and laptop-based Internet usage.The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) registered the number of Internet subscribers in India at 164.81 million on 31 March 2013. Seven out of eight users were accessing the Internet from their mobile phones.

While the comScore report puts mobile and tabled-based Internet traffic at just 14 percent of the total.

Mobile phone based Internet usage is a major component of Indian Internet usage.
