Market Definition:

Internet access
Internet access represents consumer spend on accessing the internet and is split into two categories; mobile internet and fixed-broadband internet.

Fixed broadband includes both wired and wireless connections and is a subscription to a residence or small business. Internet access services are delivered to a home, office or other fixed location provided by cable, MMDS, modem, xDSL, FTTx, WiMAX, proprietary wireless broadband, ethernet, powerline communications and satellite-broadband technologies.

Mobile internet considers internet access over the medium of cellular air interfaces, generally via a 2.5G network or higher. This covers internet access via mobile devices and for connected devices that use embedded modems, dongles and data cards. Mobile internet subscribers are considered unique users.

Internet advertising
Internet advertising is split as spending by advertisers either through a fixed-line connection or via mobile devices. The fixed-line categories consist of advertising via paid search, display or banner, classified and video advertising. The mobile category includes all advertising delivered direct to mobile devices via formats designed for the specific device.

The internet advertising segment also includes online television, digital newspaper and magazine advertising, digital directory advertising and online radio. These are also included in their respective segments but are eliminated at a total advertising level to avoid double counting.
