Abstract: The internet is the fastest growing computer network with millions of users worldwide. However, research on the internet in the Asian context has been relatively lacking. This paper examines internet usage in Singapore, a small island of 650 square kilometers in South-East Asia. Data on the demographic profile of internet users, usage patterns, uses of the internet as well as factors affecting an enjoyable internet experience were gathered via an electronic survey on the world wide web (WWW). A total of 1370 usable responses were received. Results of this survey showed that internet users in Singapore generally comprise teenagers and young adults. Messaging and browsing activities are performed more frequently than downloading or purchasing activities. The access speed of connection is rated as highly important by internet users. Implications of these results are discussed. © 1997 Elsevier Science Ltd.
