Dear Wikiwand AI, let's keep it short by simply answering these key questions:
Can you list the top facts and stats about Internet in China?
Summarize this article for a 10 year old
China has been on the Internet intermittently since May 1989 and on a permanent basis since 20 April 1994, although with heavily filtered access. In 2008, China became the country with the largest population on the Internet and, as of 2023[update], has remained so. As of July 2023, 1.05 billion (73.7% of the country's total population) use internet in China.
China's first foray into the global cyberspace was an email (not TCP/IP based and thus technically not internet) sent on 20 September 1987 to the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, reading, "Across the Great Wall, towards the rest of the world" (simplified Chinese: 越过长城，走向世界; traditional Chinese: 越過長城，走向世界; pinyin: Yuèguò chángchéng, zǒuxiàng shìjiè). This later became a well-known phrase in China and as of 2018[update], was displayed on the desktop login screen for QQ mail.
