Since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, East European consumers have joined the communications revolution, getting access to cable television networks, buying personal
computers and getting more
telephone lines. Internet access is also growing, particularly among professionals.
Results of opinion surveys conducted in face-to-face interviews with at least 2,000 people in 12 East European countries.
Do you receive any television programs through a cable service or on your personal satellite dish or is your TV connected to a satellite dish that serves several households?
Do you own a telephone, in working condition, in your home or at a location other than work?
Do you have a VCR, in working condition, in your home or at a location other than work?
Do you ever use e-mail (includes access to the Internet)? Only professionals were asked this question.
Did you know
the number of Russians who had a personal computer at home rose from 2 percent in April 1993 to 3 percent in April 1995?
During the same period, the number in Poland rose from 11 percent to 20 percent.
