The own residence was the main Internet access point in April/May 2011; 90.1% of internet users accessed the Internet from their homes. It is followed by the workplace, with a percentage of 20.9% of the users. In this case, we observe a continued downward trend since 2005, when 32.4% of the users accessed the Internet from their workplace.

Behind the previous access points (home, work), we find someone else's houses (e.g. friends and family) with 10.2% and public places such as telecentres or o cybercafés. The least frequent access point, which has been considered in this study, is universities or study centres (6.5%).
