96% of households with children got access to Internet in Poland

As much as 96 percent in Poland, households with children have access to the Internet, while in families without children – 19 percentage points less. Similar differences are also found in other poorer EU countries, notes the Polish Economic Institute (PIE).

As noted by PIE, the Covid-19 pandemic has left its mark not only in the health sphere but also in education. They cite a UNICEF estimate that 1.6 billion children and young people were affected by school closures restrictions during the pandemic and that at least 460 million students worldwide may not have been enrolled in distance learning programs at the time. In their opinion, one of the main reasons was the lack of adequate infrastructure in the student's home, including the lack of internet access to adequate quality.

According to the quoted Eurostat data, in 2019 in the EU (excluding the United Kingdom), 88 percent of households had access to broadband internet. However, if only households with dependent children are taken into account, this figure rises to 96 percent (and in this respect, there are no major differences between countries. The lowest level is recorded in Bulgaria – 91 percent).
