Mumbai recorded the largest number of internet users in India in 2014. This was revealed by a study conducted by the Internet & Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) and released on 4 November 2014.
According to the study, Mumbai recorded 16.4 million internet users surpassing Delhi and Kolkata. Delhi recorded 12.15 million internet users and Kolkata recorded 6.27 million internet users.
Main Highlights of the Study
It augurs well for India that the number of internet users has increased since October 2013, however, the low percentage of internet penetration is not good as India already has the lowest Internet penetration rate in the Asia Pacific region.
Also, an active user is someone who uses the net at least once a month. So these numbers do not necessarily translate into good news for the country’s digital space, because a significant portion of that number will not access news online, use e-commerce sites to buy their goods, or even use social media or networking sites.
