The Russian Internet is now a grandiose success showing high and stable growth
The Russian Internet is now a grandiose success showing high and stable growth. Nezavisimaya Gazeta has published an article about the Internet in Russia with reference to the annual report of the research and social initiative foundation, Rambler. According to Rambler's Top100, the average of 4 million people visit Russian language sites daily. Over 50% of these people are based in Russia. This September, over 11 million people surfed the Internet from Russian territory. Monthly growth of Russian Internet users will account for 3.2 million people in 2004. Presumably, the Russian segment of the Internet will double in number in the next three years, given the favorable economic situation. The most popular Internet offers are search engines, email and Internet versions of media publications, including newspapers. When such events as the start of the war in Iraq or terrorist attacks on Russia take place, information resources account for 36% of all visited pages of the Runet, while on "quiet" days, they may have only 15% of users' attention. The Internet permanently expands. The fastest growth, over 10% annually, is seen in the resources that deal with property, goods, services, business and career. They make the overwhelming majority of categories develop at an advanced pace (20% growth or more). The geographic map of Internet users remains stable. Russian Internet users account for 32% in Moscow, 7% in St. Petersburg, 25% in the provinces and 36% abroad. Interestingly, the increase in the number of Internet users in the provinces is conspicuous - while the number of St. Petersburg Internet users has increased by 1.5%, the number of their provincial peers has gone up 4.5%. Moscow is noticeably ahead of the other Russian regions in terms of the number of web surfers and their Internet-related experience. 30% of Muscovites over 18 can be identified as Internet users. Over 1.5 million people in Moscow surf the Internet every day. The web has also become a graphic example of grandiose success, as it has developed into a new sector of the Russian economy from scratch, and its growth has never been lower than 35-40% a year. If other economic branches could develop in the same pace, the doubling of GDP could be a matter of three years
