I. Endeavors to Spur the Development and Application of the Internet
The construction and improvement of the Internet infrastructure has beefed up the spread and application of the Internet. By the end of 2009 the number of Chinese netizens had reached 384 million, 618 times that of 1997 and an annual increase of 31.95 million users. In addition, the Internet had reached 28.9% of the total population, higher than the world average. At the same time, there were 3.23 million websites running in China, which was 2,152 times that of 1997. The number of IPv4 addresses approached 230 million, making China the second-largest owner in the world. Of all the netizens, 346 million used broadband and 233 million used mobile phones to access the Internet. They had moved on from dialing the access numbers to broadband and mobile phones. These statistics make China among the top of the developing countries in developing and popularizing the Internet.

"In December 2008, the Pew Internet & American Life Project released The Future of the Internet III, the third in a series of surveys of Internet leaders, activists and analysts that elicited their views on emerging Net and Web developments. In this most recent review, an overwhelming majority of experts predicted that by 2020 the mobile device will become the primary connection tool to the Internet for most individuals worldwide."
