This time of the year everybody involved with Internet usage
statistics is very busy updating figures for publishing the 2004
year end stats. We expect to collect and receive new data during
the next six weeks period of time in order to publish a general

will be available towards the end of February. For the moment, we
can tell you that China has updated data and the number of
subscribers is now 94,000,000 in mainland China, a seven million
