More seniors use modern technology

The number of seniors in the Czech Republic using mobile phones and the internet has increased dramatically in the past decade, according to a recent study by the Czech Statistical Office. Ten years ago one-fifth of all Czechs aged 65 and older used mobile phones, today they are used by 84% of that age group and around 17% percent use the internet. The biggest jump in cell phone use is among 75-year-olds and older. Whereas in 2007, less than 30% of that group were using mobile phones, today it is around 70%.
