More Canadians access Internet in September: Jupiter Media
More than 14 million Canadians accessed the Internet from home last month, a 4.4% increase over levels recorded in the month of August. Jupiter Media Metrix, Toronto, reports that the need for information and communication in the wake of the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington contributed to the increase in traffic. The web monitoring firm also indicates that news sites were inundated with people trying to get up-to-the-minute information. CNN.com led the pack with 1.8 million unique visitors in September, a nearly 200% increase in traffic over the month of August. The four other most visited sites were: MSNBC.com, CBC.ca, Radio-Canada.ca, and globeandmail.com.
