While almost half of Europeans use the Internet every day, one third have never used the web, according to a study by the European Commission.
The commission’s study showed that 56 percent of Europeans had become regular Internet users by 2008, a jump of one third since 2004. Forty three percent of those EU citizens currently use the web every day, while 75 percent use it regularly (”at least once a week”) compared to only 43 percent in 2005. Half of all households and more than 80 percent of businesses had a broadband connection last year and with 114 million subscribers the EU is in fact the largest world market for fixed broadband access.
