The majority of Russians (88%) have never used the Internet, according to a poll by the Public Opinion foundation. The poll, which questioned 3,000 Russians over 18 years old, found that of those people who had never used the Internet, 64% had no desire to learn how to use it. This figure was much lower among young people - 36%.
12% of Russians have used the Internet at least once. 5% access the Internet at work and 4% at home. People with higher education are the most likely to have used the Internet (38%). As a rule, Internet users access the web fairly regularly: a quarter of them (3% of those polled) said they had used the Internet within the last 24 hours; 2% had used it during the last week; and 3% had used it during the last month.
