The Internet ratings report for the month of June 2001 revealed that Web usage at work jumped 23% in the past year with more than 42 million Web surfers logging on to their computers at the office.

Across the board, work usage increased as office users logged on more often, visited more sites and spent more time online. In June 2001, Internet users at work logged on 43 times, rising 10% from 39 sessions one year earlier. Time spent online grew to 22 hours 38 minutes.

Wireless Internet

A study by Myers Reports predicts that use of the wireless Internet will increase nearly 17-fold by 2006. The study is based on residential and wireless usage data from the FCC. Myers also reports that cell phone usage will increase, though not as much. By 2010, the study predicts the average user will spend 75 hours a year using the wireless Internet, but a mere 30.2 hours per year using a cell phone. Computer security and data protection will have come a long way by then also.
