Internet access on the rise

A NEW poll carried out by the GfK agency in January this year showed that every other Slovak has access to the Internet, the SME daily reported.

In Bratislava, 56 percent of respondents said they had Internet access. Twenty-five percent said they could get the net at home as well, which is the highest percentage of all the Slovak regions.

The Internet, however, is also finding its way into smaller towns and villages around the country, thanks to lower connection prices.

Currently, the cheapest, but also the slowest, connection to the Internet costs Sk250 per month (€6.5). The Telecommunications Office recently published a long list of firms, which provide Internet connection for this price.

Most people connect to the Internet at work, in Internet cafés and libraries.

The number of households that have computers is also rising. In the summer of 2004 an MVK agency survey showed that 40.8 percent of households had a computer, which represented a 5 percent growth year-on-year.
