More people are using wireless access to use computers.

Statistics New Zealand says more than half of households with the internet use laptops or handheld computers at home in 2009, five times more than in 2006.

A quarter of users accessed the internet through mobile phones or wireless hotspots while away from home, compared with 14% of users in 2006.
