According to I-Cube 2006 report by the Internet And Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) and IMRB International, only 38% of all the Internet users in India contribute to ‘heavy users’ group and they spend mere 8.2 hours per week over Internet on average. The percentage of users has increased double-fold from 16% in 2001 with 20% in 2004.
According to study, school going kids spend an average of 322.3 (5.4 hours) minutes a week on the Internet, while college going students spend an average of 433.2 minutes (7.2 hours) a week.
Older men spend an average of 580.5 minutes (9.7 hours) a week.
Among women, working women spend an average 535.3 minutes (8.9 hours) and non-working women spend 334.5 minutes (5.6 hours) a week.
Another time facts are –
Top 4 metros – 547.7 min (9.1 hours)
Other 4 metros – 423.5 min (7.1 hours)
Small metros – 467.1 min (7.8 hours)
Non metros – 381 min (6.4 hours)
Going by facts, it is clear that time spent on Internet per week increases with the age of users in India.
