Survey reveals internet dependency

As dial up use declines more New Zealanders are becoming
dependent on the internet, according to a survey by the Auckland University of

The NZ World Internet Project survey in which 1200 New
Zealanders responded, found that 83% are now using the Internet, up from 79% in
2007. Of those internet users, 82% are broadband subscribers, with dial-up use
declining. In addition two-thirds of respondents said the internet is so
important, that losing access would cause a problem.

InternetNZ policy director Jordon Carter, whose organisation
supports the research, says the survey shows that Internet is “now an
established part of most people’s lives, and highlights the importance of free
and unfettered access to the Internet.”
