Austria’s Online Population

The number of Internet users in Austria grew by 49 percent, or 850,000 people, in 2000, according to the Austrian Internet Monitor.

According to the study, there are 2.7 million Internet users over the age of 14 in Austria, putting Internet penetration in Austria well over the EU average.

Despite the increase in Internet users, e-commerce has not taken off in Austria. Only 6 percent of Austrian Internet users bought goods or services online in 2000. The most visited site in Austria last year was that of broadcaster ORF, followed by messaging site Sms.at, and Oebb.at, the site of the Austrian rail service.
