The Filipino Internet User Report Part 2Janette Toral
The Filipino Internet User Report Part 2 shows that 78% of Internet users in the country are using prepaid Internet cards to go online.
1056 Internet users from different parts of the country (at least 10 regions) were randomly surveyed, face-to-face, from May to September 2003 to come up with this report.
Highlights of the report as follows:
- 78% of Internet users in the country are using prepaid Internet cards. Infocom is the top prepaid Internet card of choice.
- 23% of postpaid Internet accounts in the country are running on broadband with PLDT leading in the survey. On the dial-up postpaid Internet account, PLDT and Globe are on neck-to-neck with equal share.
- Women are growing online. For four years that we’ve been doing surveys, this is the first time that our summary showed that there are more women online than men.
- As majority of Internet users in the country are young people, the school and Internet cafe remains as the most popular access point especially among women. However, more male Internet users access the Internet from their homes.
- 31% of PC owners have more than one PC at home. 7% have local area network connections at home.
- The lead adopters of DSL Internet access are men. Internet habits change as a result of such access.
- An average Internet user goes online at least 14 hours a week
- Email, browsing, instant messaging, accessing entertainment information, and reading news are most popular Internet activities of a Filipino Internet User
- Internet users who’ve been online for more than 6 years tend to read less printed newspapers and magazines compared to those who’ve been using the Internet for only a year.
This report shall be a comprehensive, year-to-year examination of the impact of online technology. This work will be submitted to be part of the World Internet Project, organized and coordinated by the UCLA Center for Communication Policy. Included in the WIP are UCLA’s work and partner studies in countries in Europe, the Middle East, South America, and Asia.
The report explores how the Internet influences the social, political, and economic behavior of user and non-users. As we continue this year-after-year, we will be able to compare the evolving responses of the Internet users and non-users.
Each year we will contact the same persons/households to explore how online technology affects the lives of those who continue to use the Internet, those who remain non-users, and those who move from being non-users to users, and vice versa.
