    The headline says 92% if Icelanders have access to the internet, but then the article says that 92% have COMPUTERS and only 90% of them have internet access. So the 90% of 92% is around 82.8% of Icelanders have internet access.

    The original article only says 90% of Icelandic households have internet access: http://www.icenews.is/index.php/2009/10/07/90-of-icelandic-households-with-internet-access/ which doesn’t make much sense either after the 90% of 92%.
