From Reuters, via CNet:

The number of Web users in China, the world’s second-largest Internet market, grew by 18 percent in 2005 to 111 million, the Economic Daily reported Wednesday.

Some 8.5 percent of the country’s 1.3 billion people now have access to the Internet, the newspaper reported, citing a survey released by the China Internet Network Information Center.

State media previously predicted that 120 million Chinese people would be surfing the Web by the end of 2005, as computers find their way into more homes and domestic telecommunications networks grow.
