According to an international survey published by the GfK agency on January 3, nearly half of Slovaks with access to the Internet (42 percent) browse online every day, outnumbering their Hungarian and Polish counterparts in this respect.

As many as 70 percent of Slovak users write e-mails nearly every day, 63 percent search for up-to-date information and 39 percent visit chat rooms.

The survey of 13 countries in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) - Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Russia, Poland, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Ukraine and Bosnia and Herzegovina - further showed that 37 percent of people with online access in Slovakia use the Internet only a few times a week, while 9 percent use it only a few times per month.

In the survey, which put Slovakia in fourth place in terms of total Internet usage, the Nuremberg-based GfK contacted 1,000 respondents in each country through its subsidiaries. TASR
