China passes US in broadband subscribers

China now has 31 million people on the high-speed Net.

China now has more than 31 million broadband subscribers, according to the China Internet Network Information Center. That's more people than the United States' 26 million (as of the first quarter) – though of course the penetration rate is much higher in the U.S. Yet another non-U.S. place to watch for innovations in how people are using the high-speed Net.
