Over 50pct of China's Rural Population Getting Online With Mobile [bbc.co.uk]
|Mobile phones are now the most common way for people to connect to the internet in China, a report has said. |
For the first time, desktop computers are no longer the leading method for the country's 538 million connected citizens to get online.
The report from the China Internet Network Information Center (CINIC) said over 50% of the year's new internet users were from rural areas.
A fall in smartphone costs has been the key cause of growth, experts said.
