Network congestion and the much publicised problems of America OnLine were not enough to prevent over 18 million people logging on to online services and the Internet in 1996, acccording to market research from Washington-based Telecommunications Reports International.
By the fourth quarter of the year, 30,000 people a day logged on for the first time. The company predicts that if the 1996 growth rates continue, a further 12 million people will have logged on to some form of online service by the end of 1997. The top four services - AOL, CompuServe, Microsoft Network and Prodigy - have 15.7 million subscribers between them.
