Abstract:  Study highlights the importance of the Internet access in the context of India and China, which together are home to approx 40% of world’s population. It compares the recent trends in the growth of Internet users and Internet connections in the two countries. It explores the problems encountered in its proliferation and examines the factors, which might play crucial role in its future growth. China holds the clear edge over India in terms of number of Internet users and Internet hosts; India is better rated when it comes to e-readiness. Internet is still out of reach of rural population in both the countries and both need to have low cost local language based computing devices for the use of rural population to access Internet.
