A total of 59.2 percent of Slovaks actively use the internet, meaning at least once a month, according to a survey conducted by the TNS Slovakia agency in May. Only 2.3 percent use the internet less frequently with 38.5 percent saying they no experience with the internet, the TASR newswire reported.
Most internet users are 39 or under with higher university education and are from Bratislava Region, TASR wrote about the survey results. It is mostly older people (over 50) and less educated people who do not use the internet at all.
Nine out of ten respondents (93 percent) who actively use the internet do so at home, with 33.2 percent at work, 20.6 percent at their friend's or relative's place and 18.5 percent at school. Among the people who do not have an internet connection, 17.5 percent plan to order one over the next 12 months and 52.7 percent say they do not plan to do so.
The survey involved a sample of 1,006 respondents age 15 and older.
