More than 70 percent of Taiwan’s Internet users, or 4.6 million people, access the Internet at home, 40 percent (2.6 million people) in a school environment, 28 percent (1.8 million) in the office and 7 percent at Internet cafés. Of those with Internet access at home, just over 30 percent have had it for less than one year.
