Half of all Europeans on Net surf from home

Published on .

Most European Net users surf the Internet from home, according to a new study published by International Data Corp., Framingham, Mass. In a telephone survey in May 1998, which surveyed 7,103 households in seven European countries, almost 47.9% of Europeans who use the Net count their own home among their Internet access locations. Some 40.7% log on from work, and another 28.8% obtain Internet access from schools. The study also found that younger people in Europe tend to tap into the Internet from schools, friends' homes, libraries and Internet cafes.
