外文标题：India to have more internet users than US by December end: IAMAI
NEW DELHI: The number of internet users in India would reach 302 million by December 2014, registering a year-on-year growth of 32%, a study released on Wednesday said.
The internet in India took more than a decade to move from 10 million to 100 million and three years from 100 to 200 million. However, it took only a year to move from 200 to 300 million users, it said.
"In October 2014, there were 278 million internet users in India. Currently, India has the third largest internet users' base in the world but it is estimated that by December 2014, India will overtake the US as the second largest internet users' base in the world," the study said.

Good report, however... India Population is 1.2B...internet users 31%, China 1.4B...internet users approx. 48%, USA population is 400M...internet users 70 %. Other major draw back in India is Internet speed is very low... hope we will catch up at least in speed!
Computer literate population of India is much higher than in USA. More over, India has advanced a lot in technology and the use of smartphones as well.
Dont compare with US, compare with China.
