By: MarkJ - 28 November, 2003 (2:13 PM)

UK ISP Virgin.net has issued the results of its "Surfing Scales" survey, which shows how long people in different areas of the UK spend surfing the Internet. Surfers in Swansea spent an average of 66.7 hours online each month, twice that of London users:

Towns in the East-Midlands and North-East, where internet surfing patterns were found to be sporadic and intermittent, feature near the bottom of Virgin.net's Surfing Scales.

Average number of hours spent online per customer/month

1 Swansea 66.7
2 Reading 62.7
3 Guildford 62.9
4 Dundee 59.8
5 Liverpool 57.1
6 Sheffield 55.7
7 Blackpool 55.6
8 Manchester 52.9
9 High Wycombe 51.1
10 Bournemouth 51.1

Interestingly the survey was accomplished using Virgin.net's unmetered dialup package, which hasnít seen the most favourable of coverage. More @ Web-User.
