BRIEF: Canadians like the Internet

By in News

The Canadian Media Research Consortium has released a new study that shows Canadians value their Internet connections over other media.

In the online survey of over 1,600 Canadian adults, 42 per cent of respondents say they would be “least willing to give up” their home Internet connection, while 24 per cent claim they would be least willing to give up their television cable subscription; 17 per cent each say the same about their mobile phone or newspaper subscription.

Previous research by the CMRC has shown that although Canadians still receive more of their news from television, among people aged 18 to 29, the Internet is by far the most popular medium for news and information, accounting for 32 per cent of their intake.
