5 key findings on how individuals access and use the Internet in ECTEL Member States

A brief examination of some of the findings from an ECTEL survey on how individuals access and use the Internet in five Caribbean countries.





Last week, the Eastern Caribbean Telecommunications Authority (ECTEL) announced the release of the findings of a broadband Internet survey it had commissioned in 2014. The resulting report, Broadband access and use in the ECTEL Member States, summarised the outputs of three surveys administered to: households; individuals (15 years and older); and minor children (14 years and younger). Those exercises were conducted in Saint Kitts and Nevis; Dominica; Saint Lucia; Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and Grenada, which together are termed the ECTEL Member States and are the countries in which ECTEL is part of the telecoms/ICT regulatory machinery.

The surveys, which were administered by the local statistics department and National Telecommunications Regulatory Commission, were able to reach a wide cross-section of individuals in each of the five participating countries. Across all of the countries and for each of the three surveys conducted, the total number of survey responses received were as follows:

  • Household access and use - 3,294 households
  • Individual access and use - 8,460 individual (aged 15 and above), and
  • Access and use by minors - 3,142 minor children (aged below 15 years).
