Austrian avaialibilty to the internet is changing, says the Austrian Times.

Money quote:

Europe-wide investigations show that Austrians take last place when it comes to how long they surf the web for each day. The study, which was presented last year, reveals that Austrians go online 14 hours a month – which is half the European average. People living in the Netherlands are at the top with 35.2 monthly internet hours, followed by Britons (33.9 hours) and Turks (31.8), according to Austrian magazine profil.

When I lived in Salzburg  several years ago, I was aghast at the lack of connectivity to the internet, and the nonchalance with which many locals seemed to shrug off this lack of connectivity.
