Internet connection

In 2011, 65% of homes in Southern District had a broadband internet connection.

A fast Internet Connection is increasingly required for accessing essential information and undertaking domestic and non-domestic business. Households with dial-up or no internet service are being left behind in the digital divide as both government and the private sector are increasingly conducting their business, or aspects of it, on-line.

Internet connectivity in Southern District can be affected by availability of connection, Education, Household Income and Age Structure.

Derived from the Census question:

'Can the Internet be accessed at this dwelling?'
