Tipperary lags behind in Information Technology

The town of Tipperary is behind the rest of Ireland when it comes to Information Technolgy. Census 2006 figures showed that  just 11.4% of Tipperary households had broadband and 71.84% of households had no internet access at all. This is the highest percentage of any town in Ireland  (National average 51.7%)
Also – just 36.35% of households owned a personal computer  compared  to the national average of  53.5%.
The high proportion of rented accommodation might be one of the reasons for these figures.
