state of the interwebz

ipgrowth

[via giz]

Akamai just published their 3Q09 state of the internet report, and it’s interesting reading with lots of stats. A couple stands out. Globally unique IPs grew by 17% yoy, but China alone grew by 30%. Yep, my opinion that China is a self-sufficient single market still stands.

The other stat is the average broadband connection speed. Growing in the technologically advanced countries like Korea, Japan and in Scandinavia. But decreased in the US. Another sign of decline that unfortunately no one seems to be surprised about.
