They (author Ian Perason) may or may not be correct about Internet users in 2005, but on the whole his crystal ball looks quite fuzzy (see especially the third message). That's ok, nobody's good at predicting the future. He just gets paid for it.

Internet user statistics from the International Telecommunication Union:

Asia: 65,850,500 (1999); 108,231,100 (2000); 156,508,500 (2001).

Oceania: 6,416,500 (1999); 7,653,300 (2000); 8,505,300 (2001).

USA: 102,000,000 (1999); 124,000,000 (2000); 142,823,000 (2001).

Sorry, BTexact, the Asia-Pacific region overtook the US in internet users last year. Can I have my consultant's fee now?
