The results in this report are based on a survey carried out on the Internet. About 2700 persons have answered questions about their use of Internet at home. In addition the answers they gave in the Norwegian national passenger travel survey from 2005 (NPTS 2005) are added. Based on the results from this survey it is difficult to draw an unambiguous conclusion about the relationship between physical and virtual mobility. The results indicate that the frequent users of Internet for various purposes also have a relatively high level of physical mobility. The distribution and use of Internet are continuously increasing, and those who take this new technology in use are different from those who don’t. When access to this technology becomes even more common, this will probably change. The distinction between users and non-users are significant in this survey. Those who do not have access to Internet have also less access to private transport resources. It seems that the highly mobile groups also are highly frequent Internet users.
