We are number two for searches of porn*, if this is to believed. Just behind South Africa.

Good to see we aren't falling behind in the OECD ratings for that!



* I know there was another thread about this which was relating to searchs inside NZ as far as I know but this is comparing NZ as a whole to the world!

I'm glad I live in a dirty country.

Interestingly we are at the top or near to it in just about every trend.

Does this mean we use the internet more than most countries? Is our uptake much higher than we have been lead to believe?

Is that correct? Surely we're not that dirty!

Luckily when it comes to some searches, like googling about invading iraq - we are not the highest... I'd make some joke about Bush googling for guidance in the war but I would get trolled (remind internet nz to lobby the government because we aren't in the top 10).

So based on the porn trend and this trend for passwords...

Password Trend

Does that mean that not only are we a dirty nation but we're not overly willing to pay for it and we're patient to to wait excessively long download times?

Ok,
We have a statistically proven interest in porn. But no means of efficently delivering the content to us.
How about some studios come to new zealand and pour some money into LLU, or build a backbone and sell it to a few ISP's.

They could bid to buy the fibre that runs alongside the main rail trunk.

You can already download content without any issues (look at people using bittorrent to download much larger images)- the problem (for the users anyway) is that they have to pay to produce the stuff anyway, which is a turn off for many users (see also online music stores vs peer to peer).

Most of these bit torrent downloads will be running over the dsl network which I regard as inefficent because it has too many bottlenecks.
