Ecommerce in China:Powered by Govt Subsidized Cheap Broadband, and rising 800 million middle class

Ecommerce in China: How the World's Biggest Market Buys Online: "China has an estimated 193 million online shoppers, more than any other country. By 2015, those consumers will be spending $1,000 per year online — the same amount that U.S.'s 170 million online shoppers currently spend annually. By that time, ecommerce could account for more than 8% of all retail sales in China, Boston Consulting Group predicts.

Broadband Internet access costs around $10 per month, compared to $30 per month in India and $27 per month in Brazil."
