OFCOM’s Annual Online National Report

COVID-19 has changed the way we live, work and socialise, potentially for good. With the second national lockdown just over, more people were staying indoors, working from home and using an increasing number of online applications, day-to-day. This also brings wider benefits including a better work/life balance and a cleaner environmental footprint.

Unsurprisingly, internet usage has skyrocketed in recent months. According to Ofcom’s latest study, UK adults now spend on average over 4 hours a day online. More than 7 in 10 adults are now making video calls weekly and online video conferencing application Zoom has seen its users go from under 700,000 to over 13 million in a period of 4 months.
