China, the world’s largest online population: infographic

China is now responsible for over a half a billion web users (greater than the total population of the EU), following a short period of tremendous growth.

This means that more than one in five people with online access are Chinese, up from 200m in total in 2007.

It was also on track to surpass 1bn mobile connections in Q1 of 2012, with market penetration currently estimated at 72%.
