HOUSEHOLDS WITH INTERNET ACCESS
Broadband was the most frequently used type of internet connection for both Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander households and other households. Of the 131,300 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander households with an internet connection, 85% most frequently connected to the internet using Broadband, 11% most frequently used 'other' types of connections (e.g. mobile phones) and 4% most frequently used Dial-up connections.
Around six in 10 (59%) Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people lived in a household with an internet connection, compared with just over eight in 10 (84%) non-Indigenous people. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 24 years and under were more likely to live in a dwelling with an internet connection than those aged 55 years and over (63% compared with 42%). A similar pattern was observed for non-Indigenous people, with 91% of people aged 24 years and under living in a dwelling with an internet connection compared with 67% of those aged 55 years and over.
