5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

More than a quarter of all households in Britain now have access to the Internet, according to Web watcher MMXI Europe.

In its latest batch of number crunching, MMXI claims that more than seven million households (out of a nationwide total of 25 million) are now online.

The number of households online has risen by more than two million since October 1999.

MMXI Europe also reckons that of the 20 million people who have access to the Net, 10.6 million hooked up to the Web in June.

Mari Kim Coleman, UK MD at MMXI Europe, said: "The Internet proves to be a valuable source of information for more and more people in the UK.

"Although there is a shortfall between those who access the Internet regularly and those who have the opportunity to do so, this gap is getting smaller as people get used to the Internet."

Last month Net pollster NetValue said women flocked to the Net in June to escape football on TV. ®
