237 million internet users in India by 2015: Report

Boston: India will see its number of internet users triple to 237 million from the current 81 million by 2015, according to a report.

In a study titled ‘Internet’s New Billion’, the Boston Consulting Group said Brazil, Russia, India, China and Indonesia (BRICI) will have more than 1.2 billion internet users by 2015 – well over three times the number of internet users in Japan and the US combined.

In 2009, the BRICI countries had some 610 million Internet users.

“Internet penetration rates in the BRICI countries will experience compound annual growth of 9 to 20 per cent from 2009-2015, driven predominantly by young users who will form the digital-market eco-systems that will be in place for generations to come,” the management consulting firm said.
