More than two million people are using the internet in Australia each day, according to a report.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics says about 6.8 million people have access to internet in the country, with about 10 per cent accessing the internet from a mobile phone.
According to a survey, about 4 per cent of the country’s population have access.
However, the ABS also found the average internet connection speed in Australia was lower than in the US, where the average connection speed is 25 megabits per second.
A total of 7 per cent said they were using their phones for work, while 3 per cent had their mobile connected to a broadband connection, according the report.
There are several areas in Australia where internet speeds are significantly higher than average, with Brisbane, for example, having an average connection of 50Mbps and Sydney a staggering 100Mbps.
The report found Melbourne had the fastest internet connection in Australia at 1.8Mbps, followed by Brisbane, Sydney and Adelaide.
The most populated metro areas are in the north and west of the state.
Most people in Perth use their phones to access the internet, while some residents in the state are using a laptop or desktop computer.
The Australian average speed is 5.7Mbps, with the ACT, New South Wales, Tasmania and Western Australia topping the list.
It’s not just the internet that Australians are getting online with, with mobile phones accounting for about 40 per cent and Wi-Fi providing another 40 per 100 people.
People in the west are the least likely to have a smartphone, with fewer than half using a phone for work.
More than two-thirds of people in the east of the nation use their phone for business and more than three-quarters for home use, according statistics released by the ABS last year.
