Contains details of Internet activity facilitated by Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in Australia. It includes characteristics and location of ISP customers and their Internet usage, and the nature of related telecommunications infrastructure. Broad level statistics include the number of business and private Internet subscribers, the number and types of accounts offered by ISPs, the volume of traffic through ISPs to Internet subscribers, the number of lines providing Internet connectivity to subscribers, subscriber to infrastructure ratios etc.

The annual frequency of the collection provides an indication of the growth/rationalisation of ISPs and the number of Australians and Australian businesses obtaining access to the Internet through ISPs. It also indicates movements in the type and amount of infrastructure available to provide connectivity to the Internet.

The frequency of this publication reduced from quarterly to half yearly with the release of the September 2001 issue and from half yearly to annually with the release of the March 2005 issue.
