Most are too old, too poor or too poorly educated to be able to access them,and instead traditionally rely upon personal contacts they trust for advice. Within this groupthere are low levels of literacy and many people do not feel that their life outcomes are muchsubject to their own decisions. Within this group there is a very low level of ownership ofpersonal computers, very little access to them at work and little ambition to master the skillsnecessary to take advantage of information technologies. Unsurprisingly, these people have avery low level of using email at any location (home, work and other locations) or participating inother on-line activities.Members of this group tend to live in the poorer areas of traditional mining and manufacturingtowns and to have conservative social attitudes. A high proportion of the group is made up ofelderly people, many of whom live in social housing or sheltered accommodation.Type A01 : Low technologistsThis type contains a number of people, mostly older women it would seem, whose primary useof the Internet, if they use it at all, is to buy apparel, children’s clothes and vitamins. For thesepeople the Internet is seen as an electronic version of a mail order catalogue, and notsomething that you learn from. Its members are particularly unlikely to own a mobile phone or tosubscribe to cable television.Type A02 : Cable sufficesThis type comprises people with some limited interest in electronic technologies but who haveneither the education nor income to become heavily engaged in using them. Many of this typeare men who have recently retired or who are approaching retirement. A high proportion hasaccess to cable television.Type A03 : Technology as fantasyThis type contains many old males, some of whom have an interest in electronic technology andlike to read about it, but few of whom use it for obtaining information or for on line ordering. Thisis a group which has very low take up of cable television. Many transient people fall into thiscategory.Type A04 : Mobile’s the limit

This type has particularly low levels of use of computers and the Internet, knows next to nothingabout the technology and has no motivation to do so. They enjoy more traditional modes ofcommunication, but the mobile phone represents the limit of their technical ambition. Many ofthis type are female and elderly.Type A05 : Too old to be botheredThis type consists mostly of very old people who feel that they predate anything to do withelectronic technologies. Members are particularly unlikely to be found purchasing or reading‘techie’ magazines and are among the least likely to find the computer a useful medium forplaying computer games – or even watching videos.Members of this type have little interest in acquiring E-technology skills.Type A06 : Elderly marginalisedThis type consists mostly of very elderly adults, many living on their own,, who have very poorlevels of access to electronic technology. Technology seems to be moving on at a rate fasterthan they can keep up with – for this type, mobile phones and cable television are still novelties,never mind personal computers and the Internet.Group B : E-marginalisedThe ‘E – marginalised’ are not necessarily averse to the use of electronic technologies but oftenlack the disposable income to equip themselves with them, or the training and educationneeded to understand how to make effective use of them. In this group we find very low level ofPC ownership and very little use of the Internet to obtain information or to undertaketransactions. However there are members of this group who regularly use personal computersto keep in touch via email and more are considering getting on line. This group does usesimpler and less expensive technologies such as mobile phones.Many members of this group are relatively unskilled young workers, many of whom are inmanual occupations. Many also live in low rise council estates, in areas of high unemployment,low incomes and where people are reliant upon public services.Type B07 : The Net ; What’s that?This type has a low level of engagement with electronic technologies. However those that arenot engaged have very little interest in acquiring access to personal computers or to theInternet, although they are interested in getting access to a mobile phone. This type contains alarge number of people in later middle age.Type B08 : Mobile ExplorersThis type contains many young people. They have a high level of access to the Internet both athome at work. They enjoy using computers to play games and to watch videos but do not use

them to acquire information or to undertake transactions. Many of this group are young. Theyearn ready money and spend a significant amount of it on their mobile phones.Type B09 : Cable TV heartlandThis type lives and works among a peer group for whom technology is an important lifestylestatement. Members invest considerable time considering the purchase of new technologies.They were amongst the earliest adopters of devices that link mobile telephony with the Internet.They read a lot about technology in magazines and spend a lot of time on the Internet. Theysend a lot of emails but do not make a lot of on-line purchases.Group C : Becoming engagedMembers of this group often acquire their competence in the use of information technology atwork, since many of them are young people working in junior white collar occupations in modernoffices. They are keen to become more expert in the use of new technologies and to use themfor new applications. Many spend time browsing the Internet but without necessarily makingmany transactions.Many members of this group work in large cities and may be starting a life in a house that theyown, typically in one of the cheaper inner suburbs. Their use of the Internet at work may be apractice that their employers may be keen to control or reduce.Type C10 : E-bookers and communicatorsThis type is a particularly active user of email, receiving and sending messages both at workand while on the move. The type includes a large number of young, single people, who areparticularly interested in the media of communications – they are heavy users of mobile phonesbut also frequent switchers to and adopters of new mobile technologies. Although ownershiprates of personal computers are only average, many individuals use computers to order musicand fashion on line. Downloading of music is a particularly common activity. But this type doesnot make use of the latest technical features of information technology and is unlikely to haveprofessional involvement in the IT industry.Type C11 : Peer group adoptersThis type exists on lower income and is younger than its peers in Type C10, and is even morereliant upon email, text messaging and the use of mobiles to participate in peer group activities.Fewer members of this group are employed in the types of job which would allow access toemail at work, and many fewer use personal computers to purchase goods on-line. Members ofthis type are more likely than those in type C10 to have access to cable television and to beable to access information through digital television. Being younger this type is more likely to beliving at home with parents than in a shared rented flat.Group D : E for entertainment and shoppingThis group includes a number of moderately well paid blue collar workers for whom the Internetand personal computing provide important leisure activities. This group tends to use the Internet

not for obtaining information about products or for learning, but rather to provide access tomusic, games and general entertainment. People in this group are smart enough to learn newmethods of accessing what they want but they are not necessarily interested in technology forits own sake. Besides providing a form of personal relaxation they also see the computer as aresource for family entertainment.Members of this group are found among areas of cheaper owner occupied housing, particularlyin neighbourhoods with high proportions of households with children.Type D12 : Small time net shoppersThis type comprises many younger and middle aged men who particularly rely upon the Internetto buy music, books and videos. They are also active Internet purchasers of computer gamesand of fashion wear. This group is happy to undertake a wide variety of transactions on theInternet but tends not to be professionally involved in the development of information technologywhen at workType D13 : E for entertainmentMembers of this type are not currently particularly active users of electronic technologies but arevery interested in considering the purchase of new or enhanced products, from the range ofmobile and personal computer devices. Many access the Internet using broadband and a highproportion purchase computer games. However this type is less interested in using the Internetfor shopping, seeing it primarily as a leisure and entertainment medium.Group E : E-independentsThis group tends to take a rational and considered view of electronic communications andtechnologies. These people are not interested in mobile phones, texting or the Internet aslifestyle accessories; they do not feature as major topics of conversation within the socialnetworks to which they belong and they do not provide a significant focus for leisure activity.However people are reasonably well equipped and use the Internet to search for information, tobuy products and to undertake transactions where there are obvious efficiency benefits.Type E14 : Rational utilitariansThis type tends to have access to the Internet at home and to use it extensively for shopping forgroceries, wines, apparel, books and holidays, and for transacting financial services. Many ofthese people live in the countryside and beyond the reach of cable television services. Thesepeople do not tend to use computers for playing games or as a form of leisure activity. Notbeing particularly heavy readers of computer magazines, these people treat the computer as atool rather than as an end in itself.Type E15 : Committed learners

This type consists of well educated, urban professionals with a high proportion of middle agedfemales, who use the Internet both for ordering and for information. Many of them have accessto email and the Internet at work and consider information technology as a natural method ofacquiring information – both as consumers and as emerging professionals. They tend to haveaccess to technology that they are comfortable with and are less concerned than other groupsabout peer group opinion or the outward visible features of electronic devices.Type E16 : Light usersThis type contains many people who have access to electronic technologies but who are notvery heavy users of them. Mostly in late middle age, these people do not view technology as aleisure activity and are not influenced by fashions or the need to keep up with peer groups. Thistype, though it does have access to the internet, tends not to use it to purchase games, fashionwear, videos or holidays, preferring to deal with organisations directly. However the type doespurchase flowers over the Internet.Group F : Instrumental E-usersThis group tends to use electronic technologies for purely instrumental purposes, because theyprovide a practical method of saving time or money. They have plenty of other leisure activitiesthat they enjoy and tend to be light television watchers. However they find the Internet useful forpurchasing on line and they are smart enough to realise that they can drive better deals whenpurchasing goods and services if they fore-arm themselves with consumer information.Generally they use the net to undertake transactions and manage their personal finances ratherthan to explore.This group contains mostly peop

Type A02 : Cable suffices This type comprises people with some limited interest in electronic technologies but who have neither the education nor income to become heavily engaged in using them. Many of this type are men who have recently retired or who are approaching retirement. A high proportion has access to cable television.
