The number of people using the Internet worldwide has broken the 100 million mark, according to a new survey by Matrix Information and Directory Services (MIDS). In addition, the company claims the number of Email users has risen to 120 million. The survey classifies the 102 million people with access via the TCP/IP protocol as "consumer Internet" users, with 68 million of these defined as "core users" who have access to computers and can actually publish material via the Web or FTP (file transfer protocol).
The 120 million with Email access MIDS defines as the "Matrix" group, and it estimates this figure will roughly double each year to reach 827 million by January 2001, including 707 million "consumer Internet" users and 436 million "core users".
