UK - A report on different groups of young people who discontinued their use of the Internet

Nominet has published a report.

This developed a typology of discontinued Internet use by young people:

  • primarily due to reasons of access and cost;
  • poorer quality of access to the Internet than they have experienced in the past;
  • poorer quality of access to the Internet AND not seeing the Internet as important for finding out or learning new things;
  • a combination of access, cost, skills and interest;
  • some challenges with all five factors: psychological, cognitive, physical, socio–cultural and material.
