The data was tested for reliability, analyzed using SPSS and results presented based on the study objectives.

This means that high levels of Perceived Risk will lower the level of customer trust in the internet banking systems and will also inhibit Internet Banking Adoption. The results also revealed a positive significant relationship between Perceived Ease of Use, Perceived Usefulness and Internet Banking Adoption. If customers find the Internet banking systems easy to use, they will consider them useful thus adopting Internet Banking. Finally Trust was found to have a positive and significant relationship on Perceived Usefulness. Bank customers will consider those internet banking systems they trust as useful.
