Canadians Prove to be Biggest Internet Users
A new study by comScore shows that Canadians, on average, spend nearly double the amount of time on the internet compared to residents of the U.S., Brazil, Britain, China, France, Germany, India, Japan, Russia and South Korea.
Of the 11 countries included in the study, the average number of hours spent online per person for the fourth quarter of 2010 was 23.1 hours per month. Canadians averaged 43.5 hours, with Americans not too far behind at 35.3 hours. Users in India, however, only spent 11.9 hours online.
Canadians also led the way in how frequently they go online per month. An internet visit was qualified as a unique log-on in a 30-second time frame. Canadians topped this list with an average of 95.2 visits, again followed by Americans (80.9 visits). Internet users in India lagged behind with an average of only 30.6 visits per month.
