Yes this is very interesting. Does anyone know of a good website site
that has this data? I had one in my favorites until my PC died and it
was lost. That is why I love macs. Anyone know of a good book on this as
well. I would like to know adoption rates, first isp's and where
country's rank.

Subject: [Air-l] comparative cross-national diffusion of the internet

Plenty of histories of the Internet in the US have been written. Much
has been said on the variables that it is claimed predict rates of
Internet adoption in other countries around the world. However, I'm
interested in when different countries first hooked up and especially
when the first commercial ISPs started operating in different countries.

Can anyone give me that information for the country they live in? Or
direct me to historical reviews of the network in various countries?
For what it's worth, I'm doing quite a micro-level, STS-style analysis
of the appearance of the Internet in the context of Israel, a relatively
early adopter, as far as I can tell. Any leads or information will be
much appreciated!
