The Internet & Asia

As final thought for 2007, take a look at these two charts from the World Internet Usage Statistics web site. It's a simple but compelling story:

  1. 37% of the world's 1,244 million Internet users are in Asia.
  2. The average penetration of Internet use across the world is 19%.
  3. The average penetration of Internet use in Asia is only 12%.
So, not only is the growth likely to be in Asia but, once that growth has taken place, Asia will completely dominate the Internet. It's got to be a better place to put your money than US bank shares.
