Nearly 100% of those between the ages of 15 and 40 are online, but few are over 75, according to a new study by the Media Council of the National Media and Communications Authority (NMHH), according to profitline.hu. 

The research shows that more than three-quarters of Hungarians over the age of 15, 77.52%, use the Internet, which amounts to more than 6.4 million people. 

The breakdown by age group shows that approximately all one million Hungarian representatives of Generation Z (15 to 24 years old) and nearly 100% of the two million of Generation Y (the so-called Millenials, 25 to 40 years old) are online. 

For the 2.36 million members of Generation X (41 to 56 years old), the rate is nearly 86%, while for the 2.2 million baby boomers (57 to 75 years old), it is almost 62%. 

Among those over 76 years of age, there are 740,000, and the proportion of Internet users is very low at only 6.5%.
