Seventy-six per cent of enterprises had their own website

Seventy-six per cent of enterprises had their own Internet website in spring 2009. A total of 97 per cent of large enterprises with at least 100 employees had a website while only 69 per cent of small companies employing 5 to 9 persons had one. Examined by industry, enterprises with websites of their own were most common in the sector of information and communications (99 per cent), and rarest in the industries of transportation and storage (51 per cent) and construction (58 per cent). More and more enterprises of all sizes have set up websites of their own. Since 2000, the number of sites has gone up by 29 percentage points. These data were collected with an inquiry in spring 2009 and they apply to enterprises with at least five employees.

The propagation of broadband access has continued; a total of 91 per cent of enterprises are connected. Of all enterprises 19 per cent have a broadband connection with a transmission speed of at least 10 Mbps and 80 per cent have one with a transmission speed of at least 2 Mbps. Connections with a 10 Mbps transmission speed minimum are clearly more common in large than in small enterprises. Of the largest enterprises 61 per cent had a high-speed connection, while the respective proportion in the smallest enterprises was only 11 per cent. When examined by industry, too, the prevalence of high-speed connections varies considerably; they were clearly most popular in the industry of information and communications and rarest in construction (58 per cent), and transportation and storage (10 per cent).
