Each year we report on the State of the Internet here in New Zealand. We cover what we think are key and useful metrics for analysing and understanding the Internet, grouped around three topic areas: access, trust and creative potential. Each year we will also have a special theme that we take a deep dive into. This will enable us to tap into less frequently conducted research and surveys without creating gaps in our routine metrics and analysis.
The special theme for this year’s report is trust. Trust in, or on, the Internet is vital. At InternetNZ we work to promote the Internet’s benefits and protect its potential. That potential will be unrealised if trust online falls away or if people don’t trust the Internet to do what they want, when they want. Fake news, disinformation campaigns, ransomware and having your banking credentials phished can all whittle away your trust, or even your willingness to use the Internet.
