Australian homes not as connected as they could be

A survey carried out by Galaxy Research for networking hardware vendor Netgear has found that Australians own a lot of Internet-enabled devices that they don’t bother to put online.

The report shows that there are almost 70 million Internet-enabled devices in Australian homes, but nearly 19 million aren’t connected.

Game consoles are amongst the most underutilised in terms of their Internet capabilities – less than half of the consoles in Australian homes are connected to the Internet. One possibility for this is that parents aren’t comfortable with their younger kids playing online.
