Threat to free online papers

15th August, 2009

It’s barely a year since the Irish Times scrapped charges for accessing its online content.

At the time, the site was one of the most popular news sites in Ireland, with audited traffic of 1.2 million unique users in a month. However, it had fewer than 10,000 individual paying subscribers.

The Irish Times has doubled its online audience since the charges were dropped.
