93% of UK households have a computer

@ 2013/10/23
A parliamentary answer has revealed that a staggering 93 percent of households in the UK own a computer.

That’s according to the director general of the Office for National Statistics (ONS), replying to a question from Chris Ruane, the Labour membery for the Vale of Clwyd.

What’s more, the percentage may be greater than this now, because the figures are from 2011.

According to the ONS, 88 percent of unemployed people in the UK have computers.

And, in a debate on the future of the BBC, it was revealed that 40 percent of iPlayer use is through mobile devices rather than desktop computers.
