Abstract

Internet use in Ukraine has grown rapidly over the past years. In January 2001, the number of Internet users constituted 4.6% of the Ukraine’s population, in January 2002—5.5%. In 2003, the number of Ukrainian e-users reached 8% of Ukrainian population or 3.8 million people (Press release, 2003). Research shows that about 2% of Ukrainian men and 2% of women have access to the Internet at home. Thirty-seven percent use Internet at work, 22% at home and 21% in Internet access sites (e.g., Internet cafes, libraries, etc.). Thirteen percent of Ukrainians residing in cities with the population of more than 500,000 inhabitants are Internet users, however in other areas of Ukraine its rate is lower—only 1%.
