Over one billion served

In late 2005, the Internet got its one billionth customer. The rumor is that the lucky winner received a lifetime supply of pornographic spam and genuine Nigerian scams. Just like the rest of us.

According to a report from eMarketer, 845M use the Internet “regularly.” About 250M households (how many people per household, I wonder) will have broadband this year. Although the US has the most Internet users and broadband households, Asia-Pacific has almost 40% of the world’s broadband households. Latin America is growing fastest.

For more details – like why with, say, 2.5 people per household, the total broadband population number seems implausibly high – please send $700 to eMarketer. And then spill the beans about what you find out. [Tags:]
