Access to Computers by Households in Zambia


Here is another extract from the ZICTA 2015 survey. There was a marked improvement in the proportion of households that have access to a computer, determined by at least one member of the household owning a computer, from 4.9 percent recorded in 2013 to 7.1 percent in 2015.

Correspondingly, there was a marginal improvement in the proportion of households that use their computers to access the internet at home from 46.7 percent of those that own computers recorded in 2013 to 49.7 percent recorded in 2015.

Access to Radio and Television in Zambia

Margaret Chalwe Mudenda
ZICTA Director General
This is an abstract from the Zambia Information & Communications Technology Agency (ZICTA) 2015 survey on access and usage of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs).

The proportion of households with a working television set reduced marginally from 35.5 percent recorded in 2013 to 33 percent in 2015. However, ownership of television sets by households remained relatively higher in urban areas than rural areas. Similarly, the proportion of households owning a working radio reduced from 52.7 percent reported in 2013 to 44.9 percent in 2015. The quality of radio reception was reported to be relatively better on community radio stations than the national broadcaster, ZNBC.
