The majority of Internet users are now young, black and live on less than R1,500 a month, according to a new report launched on Tuesday. The report gives the first results of The South African Network Society Survey, based on face-to-face interviews with a nationally representative sample of 1,589 South African adults across rural and urban areas of the country.
According to the report, one in three (34%) adults now use the Internet. Two out of three Internet users (66%) speak an African language at home, most of the them have not been educated beyond school level and four out of ten live on less than R1,500 per month.
