Mobile broadband use continues to rise

Mobile broadband use continues to rise

Individuals considering the benefits of using mobile broadband to keep on track with work from a remote location could be interested in the findings from a recent survey.

New data released by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) today (September 1st) revealed that 45 per cent of internet users had used their handset to access online content this year.

The data, collected as part of an ONS opinions survey, also highlighted the fact that young people are the most likely to use mobile broadband, with 71 per cent of 16 to 24-year-olds confirming they had used the technology.

In addition, people over 65 were found to be the least likely to use their mobile phones to access the internet as just eight per cent confirming they had done so in 2011.

The figures emerge following research that highlighted the ongoing popularity of social networking websites, with 57 per cent of people accessing Facebook and Twitter on their phone.

ONS recently announced that it is preparing to reclassify the method it uses to record 3G mobile phone licenses in public sector finance statistics and national accounts.
