    The average web-enabled Brit spends 23 hours a week in cyberspace with time online split between an increasingly diverse range of activities...

    You mean we can actually do things apart from sit at a computer? Wow, and I thought that those things called 'legs' were just for swinging to keep yourself occuiped whilst you wait for a web page to load! :biggrin

    its just amazing how the internet has evolved in the last decade...from when dial up was mere 14.4Kpbs, to 28.8K (which was widely used may I add), then came 33.6Kpbs and of course our trusty 56K. fast forward a few years and u have gone from 56K to 128K (for those lucky to get ISDN) and then the start of the broadband revolution: otherwise known as BT!! BANG!! 512Kpbs and now here we are 2006 and we got some on 24Mb, 10Mb :biggrin, 8Mb, 6Mb, 4Mb, 2Mb and even 1Mb and u have to feel sorry for those still on 512K...hey wait a minute wasnt there a time when some ISPs were offering 256K? how is that even broadband? well never mind, another 5-10yrs and we will be on fibre optics...bring on the 1Gb connection...lets ROCK!!! YEAH!! :D

    I've really no idea so I went for 25 to 35 hours. I suppose if I include work browsing it might exceed this. I would definitely be over 35 hours if it included off-line PC use as well.

    LOL maybe the poll would be clearer if it asked how much time you spend not on the Internet. For me that would be when I am asleep, but then my computers are still on the net even then :biggrin
