AOL TW data–are the percentages really higher?

From the recent TimeWarner meeting with analysts:
Don Logan, Chairman, Media & Communications Group, on AOL: “Today this media network represents over 100 million domestic unique monthly visitors and over 200 million globally. Our strategy relies on increasing audience and usage across these diversified properties.”

Susan sez: It’s hard not to compare these numbers to previous data. If we could look back for stats on what the numbers were in 1999 and 2001, at the time of the merger, and then before subscriptions started ebbing away–how would the percentage of the overall population online compare with the ratios for AOL users?
Lower, I bet.
