Ireland Internet statistics

An amalgam of statistics here combining data from ComScore and Akamai, the internet network people.

Looking at just some of the data that leaps out: Irelands very low average hours per visitor in comparison to its near neighbours. Irelands stands 5# from the bottom and is 63% less than to of the list The Netherlands in first place. The good folk in the Netherlands have, according to comScore, a high propensity to be on Linkedin and Twitter. The latter is most likely pulling up the time spent on line.

256K

Likewise we don’t exactly eat through the pages when online, as a consequence of our limited time online. Its best expressed on a levelling minute per page across the countries where we are an even more disappointing second from the bottom, Norway being last. But maybe it’s the lack of speed which leads to frustration, poor page turns and overall dissatisfaction.Ireland ranks very badly for the number of connections above 5Mbps and very strongly on the number still connecting at below 256k. I can’t think of life at 256k.
