China's internet population jumps to 564 million Thanks to mobile, China's Internet population has grown significantly, again.
According to a new report from the China Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC), China's Internet population grew by 10 percent, to 564 million (since the end of 2011), reaching 42.1 percent penetration.

The report says those connecting via tablets, smartphones and wireless networks increased by 18.1 percent in the same period, bringing total wireless population up to 420 million.
