The Eurostat survey reveals some interesting findings about internet usage in Malta. While internet usage in Malta is higher than the EU average, there is still a significant digital divide between generations. The Eurostat survey revealed that men in Malta use the internet more than women do. This however is only by a very small margin.

However, the survey also found that 4 out of every 10 people who are over 65 years old did not make use of the internet during the past 12 months. This highlights the digital divide between generations and the need for digital literacy programs for the elderly.

The survey found that 6 out of every 10 internet users bought something online during 2022. This is a significant increase from previous years and highlights the growing trend of online shopping.

Online purchases in Malta

During the past year, the Maltese Islands saw 161,753 online food orders, while 146,414 online clothing purchases were recorded. It is interesting to point out that around 70,000 computers, tablets, phones, and accessories were purchased online in Malta during 2022.

Streaming services in Malta

The Eurostat survey also shows that 121,509 film or series streaming services such as Netflix were bought during 2022, while 70,125 people signed up for music streaming services such as Spotify. This highlights the growing trend of online media consumption in Malta.
