MOSCOW, April 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Around 70 million Russians are Internet users, a 7% increase from 2013, the head of Russia’s electronic communications association, Sergei Plugotarenko, told an Internet and business forum on Wednesday.
The number of Russians logging in on a daily basis grew 12% year on year, now making up around 50% of the population, research suggests. “Almost half the users live in small towns and villages. This confirms our forecast that Russian regions will increase the growth of RuNet (Russian Internet) users,” Plugotarenko said.
Statistics show Russians spend an average of 121 minutes a day online, chatting for half that time in social networks and watching video. Only 60% of those connected use the web for information search, mostly for private purposes.
Some experts calculate that the RuNet national Internet domain will attract more than 85% of the population older than 18 years by the year 2020. Others put the figure at 73%.
