The number of active UK Internet users at home fell in March 2006 as reported by Nielsen//Netratings.
Of the countries tracked, only 2 showed a decline: the UK and Germany.
The UK lost nearly 123,000 users, approximately a .5% drop. There are about 24 million home Internet users in the UK.
I reckon its due to angry NTL customers cancelling their lousy service – of course that is purely personal point of view.
Around the world there were 6.7 million new users, in a total home Internet user population of 317 million people.
