Internet use growing but still low

A NEW survey showed that 19.5 percent of Slovaks use the internet. Compared to last year, this is an increase of 3.7 percent, the economic daily Hospodárske noviny wrote.

According to the survey, which was carried out by MVK agency, almost 34 percent of those who use the internet said that they worked with it every day. In general, however, as much as 29.7 percent did not understand the internet and 53 percent said they did not want an internet connection because they could not afford it.
