Internet hosts reach 100 million worldwide

14 February 2001 News

Communications software and solutions provider Telcordia Technologies, has reported that the number of Internet hosts has reached 100 million and has grown by 45% in the past year.

Internet hosts include network elements such as routers, web servers, mail servers, workstations in universities and businesses and ports in modem banks of Internet service providers (ISPs). The number of hosts is considered one of the most accurate measures of the size of the Internet. New Internet statistics under exploration at Telcordia point to the possibility of relationships among Internet growth, electronic commerce and economic changes.

Even with such a high expansion rate, Telcordia believes Internet growth may rapidly accelerate due to advances in wireless access.

Telcordia reports that there are more than 350 million Internet users worldwide, with an average of 3,4 users per host. With the high quality of service in the US there are approximately 2,4 Internet users per host, whereas in some developing countries such as China and India, there are more than 100 Internet users per host.

The top five countries with the largest number of Internet hosts are the US, Japan, Canada, UK and Germany. The five countries with the largest number of Internet hosts per capita are the US, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Canada. However, in contrast, the countries with the highest host growth rate during December are Slovakia, Uruguay, Brazil, Indonesia and Italy.
