65% of UK households had access to the Internet in 2009

According to UK government statistics, 16 million UK households (about 65%) had Internet access in 2008 which is an increase of 7 per cent since 2007.

As for the broadband, only 56% of all UK households had a broadband connection in 2008 which is an increase of 5% since 2007.

It would be interesting to know what was the criteria to decide whether the household had internet access or not. If a household did not have a proper Internet connection but other members of the family could access the Internet through his/her mobile handset, would this be counted towards having an internet connection or not?
