Two Third of Russians Use Internet Daily

About 59 percent of Russians are Internet users, which three percents more than last year, according to the recent survey conducted by an independent pollster, Levada Center.

      It's interesting that in 2001, when Levada Center first polled Russians about their Internet life, the figure was only five percent.

      The percentage varies greatly among different social groups: no wonder that over 80 percent of students, senior managers, directors and leading specialists regularly surf the Web. At the same time, only nine percent of retirees and 13 percent of Russians older than 55 years are internet users.

      A research published in March 2013 by another pollster, the Public Opinion Foundation (FOM), shows that about 50.1 million of Russians above the age of 18 (or 43 percent of the country’s total adult population) surf the internet daily, and 64.4 million adults (55 percent) browse the Web at least once a month.
