24 May 2001

Subscribers to America Online – the world’s biggest internet service with 29 million customers – spent a record $6.7 billion shopping online in the first quarter.

The figures are up 70% on Q1 2000, surpassing even the $6.4bn spent by AOL members in last year’s fourth quarter, when retail sales are traditionally at their strongest.
