  • Beijing Ranks First Among China Internet Surfers
  • February 26, 1999 (BEIJING) -- Beijing, the capital of China, leads the country in Internet surfers, according to the China Internet Network Information Center.
    Guangdong, Jiangsu and Zhejiang provinces and the city of Shanghai rank second, third, fourth and fifth, respectively.

    A recent survey conducted by the center indicated that about 77 percent of China's Internet users are in the eastern part of the country, with western regions accounting for only 23 percent.

    The number of Internet users has increased to 2.1 million from 670,000 two years ago.

    South China's Guangdong Province saw the greatest growth in the number of users since 1997, followed by eastern China's Jiangsu and Zhejiang provinces.

    Tibet, Qinghai and Ningxia have the smallest surfer populations.
