The website, which is a little over three years old, achieved this landmark on the back of its exclusive content, in-depth analysis and minute-to-minute coverage of key events from across the globe.

On election results day, May 23, 2019, News18.com again lived up to its speed and accuracy with up to the minute live results powered by thousands of journalists covering each and every counting booth. On that day, Network18 news websites cumulatively notched up a record 56.2 million unique users, helping Network18 Digital pip Times Internet which put out a newspaper advertisement earlier this week claiming it had 55 million users.

Besides English, News18.com is also available in 11 other languages, making it the only website with such a spread of languages. The consolidated figure of unique users for the entire News18 English and Languages cluster for May 2019 is at a record breaking 179 million.
