The UK Online Measurement
(UKOM) company has revealed that there are now 38.8 Million internet connected users in the country, which is up from 36.9 Million 12 months ago. Those over the age of 50 (Silver Surfer territory) make up the bulk of new additions and account for 31% of the online audience.
People aged 35-49 hold a 27% share of the online world, 21-34 year olds are on 24% and surfers aged 12-20 represent 11%. Extremely young children aged under 12 years old also command around 6% of the UK internet audience. Last month UKOM reported that broadband internet users in Britain spend 22 hours and 15 minutes surfing the net each month, equating to a 65% increase on three years ago.
At present the majority of people go online via fixed broadband ISP lines, which should surpass the 20 Million milestone at some point in the near future. The rest tend to connect via office networks and modern Smartphone's.
