By 2015 85% of households had internet access – an increase from 72% five years earlier.

While Email and Internet Banking remained the most common activities online, shopping continues to grow – especially in the younger age groups. 31% of individuals surveyed had purchased Clothes or Sports Goods online in the previous 3 months.
