Internet World Stats News

Internet World Usage News

Table of Contents


It is now over five years ago that we started doing market research in the Internet. In the beginning our work was fun and easy. It gave us a great feeling of accomplishment every time we got a new country into our statistics lists.

Today it is not so easy to find new statistical data. When we query the search engines for Internet usage stats, we generally start running in circles because we get referred back to ourselves (IWS).

We verify and document our sources, check and recheck the numbers, give the reference source, and publish the contents for free. Well Miniwatts Marketing Group is glad to make this contribution to the Internet community of Academia, professors as well as students who use our data, to the writers that cite our statistical tables, to the smart journalists that use our figures, to the market researchers that use our information, and to the web surfers that come visit and find our free statistical information useful for analyzing the Internet.

Thank you and now enjoy your personal issue of the IWS Newsletter for May, 2006.
