China Internet Network Information Center has reported that the country now has more than half a billion internet users.
The country saw 505 million internet users by the end of November. This number is likely to be even higher by now.
With this the internet penetration in the country has now touched 37.7% so there is still enough room for growth.
China remains the world’s biggest internet and mobile market. And this means that all online companies are very much interested in setting up their bases here.
China of course is also one of the most regulated and restricted internet markets in the world.
