A study by the Office of National Statistics has shown that more than 7 million Britons have never used the internet, that’s 14% of the entire UK population.
The statistics show that London has the highest rate of internet users, with 90% of inhabitants regularly using the internet for either work or personal use. The highest use age bracket was 16-24 years olds, where only 1% of this group don’t use the internet.
The other great thing that this study has shown is that more than a million and a half elderly people have embraced the net since the same study was done in 2011. Now 34.3% of the elderly population of Britain are online, a 10.5% increase in over the last 2 years.
