(22 April 2010) - - The amount of time the average Internet user spends online each day seems to be increasing, according to the results of a recent poll conducted by online tech support forum PCHelpForum.com.
In its survey of around 720 Internet users, 34% said they spent over 6 hours everyday online, with 33% spending between 4 and 6 hours, marking a stark increase on previous usage figures and indicating a growing reliance on the Internet for work and leisure.
Leon Trant, a spokesperson for PCHelpForum.com, suggested that the results reflected a wider trend amongst Internet users, as the virtual world becomes more entwined with every day life.
“Internet use has steadily increased over the last 15 years, with almost 95% of US homes now fitted with a functional broadband connection. Across work, learning and leisure activities, the Internet has revolutionized the way we live our lives, and the statistics seem to demonstrate a growing trend of net usage in all facets of modern living.”
“Our poll appears to mirror this growing trend of Internet usage, with 34% of those questioned spending in excess of 6 hours per day on the world wide web – that’s over 25% of each and every day, and around 33% of waking hours. With just 4% of respondents spending less than 1 hour per day, it appears the Internet is now central to most of our lives, and playing an increasing role in our daily routines.”
