Study: South Korea Not ‘Most-Wired’ Country

Posted on 31st March, 2006

Contrary to popular belief, South Korea is not actually the most wired nation according to a new study of international Internet usage.

Only 68% of South Korean admitted to using the Internet on the past month. That ranked No. 4, behind Japan (89 percent), Canada (72 percent) and the United States (71 percent).

Japan remains the world’s No. 1 Internet-based economy with nearly nine in 10 people claiming to have used the Internet in the past 30 days and users averaging nearly 14 hours per week online, the study said.

The World Economic Forum ranked South Korea 14 in its recent “networked readiness index”. United States topped the list with Singapore comes second.

Malaysia? No. 24 ahead of Belgium, Luxembourg and Spain which is not too shabby I must say.
