Ahuriri Ward

Telecommunication access

In 2013, 76.1% of homes in Ahuriri Ward had access to the internet.

Telecommunication and Internet statistics indicate the ability of residents in a private dwelling to communicate with people outside the dwelling and to use services provided through these media. Communication information is also used, in conjunction with other census variables, as a measure of social connectedness.

It is widely accepted that high speed internet access is an essential requirement to participate in the so-called "new economy" and households without internet service are increasingly being left behind in the information age, as both government and the private sector are increasingly conducting their business, or aspects of it, on-line.

Telecommunication and Internet statistics are also used, in conjunction with other Census variables such as Education, Household Income and Age Structure, to measure of social connectedness.

Derived from the Census question:

'Mark as many spaces as you need to show which of these are available here in this dwelling; a cellphone/mobile phone (that is here all or most of the time), a telephone, fax access, Internet access, none of these.'
