Report UK: More Than Two Million Britons Come Online In Last Year [news.bbc.co.uk]
Nearly two million more Britons have come online during the last year, over half of which are over 50, according to new research.

The UK Online Measurement Company (UKOM) found that the net audience now stands at 38.8 million, up from 36.9 million at the same time last year.

The majority of internet newbies were made up of over-50s, with more men than women joining up.



There must be traffic to be had with that. The question might be what kind of traffic and where might it come from.

With the majority being over-50's, I'd imagine they would have more disposable income.

Oh how times change:

August 2001

Research by MORI reported by the BBC found 10 million UK homes now connected to the Net compared to 6 million last year.

My next door neighbour is almost 70 and he went online a year or two ago. Only problem is that I am his savvy next door neighbour if you get my drift! :(

Or is it two million divorces with both parties now with their own accounts and email addresses rather than one between them?

I suppose I could find how the figures were calculated with a bit of digging but its too late at night
