An enterprising spirit is one of the things that makes Australia great. Businesses can expand their communications further than ever with web conferencing.

People all across Australia are now better equipped to communicate and collaborate on their next business project.

According to a study by Roy Morgan Research, rural Australia has seen a jolt in internet usage growth, as more people in more regional areas diversify the way they use the digital sphere.

The findings will be good news for anyone looking to save time and money, and expand their pool of resources, with web conferencing services in Australia.

The results show that in non-urban areas, 82 per cent of people aged 18 and over were online at least once a day - not far off corresponding with the results in major capital cities, where 88 per cent are daily users.

In fact, internet communication in non-urban areas have increased by 12 per cent between December 2011 and December 2013, demonstrating how online resources are being utilised more than ever to bring people and businesses together.

In a summary of the results, the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) said: "Digital economy capabilities are developing across Australia, witnessed by the increasing frequency of internet use and the increasing scope and variety of activities undertaken online."

"Since December 2009, there has been a shift to more intensive participation online. The proportion of people using the internet more than once a day has increased across the board by a consistent proportion. Correspondingly, the proportion of those who have never used the internet has fallen"

The similarity between the rural and urban findings suggest that adopting the digital infrastructure is now a sensible option for more collaborative business communication.

Not only does web conferencing allow information to be shared instantly, but just one digital conference room can bring together people from all over Australia .
