New Delhi: The number of Internet users in India is projected to reach 302 million by December, up 32% from a year ago, said a report released by the Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) and market research firm IMRB International on Wednesday.

While, 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, it will grow to 300 million users within a year, the report said.

Of the 278 million Internet users in October 2014, 177 million were from urban India and the number is expected to reach 190 million by December and 216 million by June, 2015.

Meanwhile, in rural India, Internet users have risen 39% to reach 101 million in October. The number is expected to touch 112 million by December and 138 million by June, 2015.
