Israelis among leaders in Internet usage

Israelis rank second worldwide in the number hours spent surfing the Internet, with an average of 37.4 hours a month, according to a survey by Dun & Bradstreet Israel. The rate of use was higher among people using broadband Internet, with an average of 38.8 hours, compared with 10.9 hours on average among people using slow connections.

The survey also revealed that the rate of penetration of broadband Internet services to the Israeli market is one of the highest in the world. Israel was ranked sixth at the end of 2006, with a rate of 68.79% to Jewish households alone. Ahead of Israel in the world rankings were South Korea, Monaco, Hong Kong, Iceland, Singapore, the Netherlands, and Denmark. Israel's high ranking is especially interesting, given that the UK was ranked in 20th place and the US 25th.
