China has been going through an explosive internet adoption period, with mobile playing a key role in getting people online.
And now, the latest report published by state-affiliated research organization China Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC) shows that the percentage of Chinese users accessing the Internet via mobile grew to 83.4 percent as of June 2014, for the first time surpassing the percentage of users who access the internet via PCs (80.9 percent).
The figure for mobile internet access is up 2.4 percentage points in just six months from the end of 2013. On the other hand, desktop computer and laptop usage both continued their decline — the former by 0.1 percentage point to 69.6 percent, and the latter by 0.4 percentage point to 43.7 percent. In total, 80.9 percent of users went through traditional PC access (including desktop computers and laptops but excluding tablets) to go online.
