Welcome to the Internet age

Where the average U.S. citizen spends up to 68 hours per month using the Internet both at home and at work (with almost 5 and a half hours spent using Facebook),  a statistic that is rapidly catching up to TV viewing time.

Where there were approximately 8.4 million active internet subscribers in Australia (as at the end of June 2009, according to the ABS).

Where broadband access has been declared a legal right in Finland, with providers having to supply all users with access speeds of at least 1 Mbps, with the aim of increasing speeds up to 100 Mbps by 2015.

What’s next for connectivity? How else will Internet usage impact on our habits and lifestyles?
