Respondents who use Internet at home (and don't manage or own a business) were asked the following question:
-If you wanted to change your internet provider and/or plan at home, where would you go for information?
Results for the business segment are representative of all New Zealand businesses by business size, region and industry. Results are also weighted to a
40%-60% split for businesses with a domain name vs businesses without.
Consumer results (ie for people who don't manage or own a business) are representative of all adults in New Zealand by age, gender, and region.
Where results are for all people (both business and consumers) the numbers are unweighted.

Limitations of the data
Where results are for all people (both business and consumers) the numbers are unweighted. Because many respondents belong to the business segment, the results are skewed towards this group and are unlikely to represent the true New Zealand average.

About this dataset
Historically InternetNZ and NZRS have undertaken three regular research surveys, two of these with Colmar Brunton – the NZRS Business and the NZRS Consumer surveys conducted biennially, and the annual InternetNZ Perceptions of the Internet survey carried out in 2017 with UMR. In 2018 Colmar Brunton consolidated these surveys into one and this dataset presents the findings from this first all-inclusive research project.
Purpose of collection
- Understand public perceptions of the Internet and perceptions of the market
- Understand how New Zealanders think about, and use the Internet, and identify any concerns
- Understand the domain name lifecycle and the specific market variables influencing .nz growth for both businesses and consumers
- Maintain consistency with previous years to ensure continuity of benchmarks and reporting
- Ensure InternetNZ has a programme of work and a marketing strategy that reflects New Zealanders' perceptions and concerns.
