Kazakhstan, Astana, Oct. 29 / Trend K. Konyrova /
Only 12.5 percent of the Kazakh people have access to the Internet, Kazakh Deputy Prime Minister Karim Masimov said at the international conference "E-government initiatives" in Astana on Oct.29.
Under the latest census of the country's population, only 55 percent of the people use the personal computer," Masimov said.
Currently only 1.2 million people or 12.5 percent of the total population are connected to the Internet in Kazakhstan, Masimov added.
"This is a negligible figure and I believe cheaper Internet services may be one of way-outs of the issue," the deputy prime minister added.
"We must attain the level of developed countries in this field," Masimov said.
