This topic has been updated with 2016 Census data for the LGA or other primary area only. What's this?

In 2011, 77.5% homes in Williamstown had an internet connection.

An internet connection is now an important utility for most households in Australia. It is increasingly required for accessing essential information and taking part in the digital economy. Australia-wide in 2016, nearly 80% of all households had internet access. However, this decreases with age – seniors are less likely to have internet access at home. The lack of internet access is likely to indicate a level of disadvantage and could be related to socio-economic factors, age, or geographical isolation.

Internet connectivity in Williamstown should be looked at in conjunction with Household Type and Age Structure, as well as Education Levels.

Derived from the Census question:

'Does any member of this household access the internet from this dwelling'
