Mobile Internet Users Hit 40%
We love Pew Internet and American Life Project for exploring the impact of the internet on families, communities and daily life. Back in January 2010, Pew Research Center reported that a whopping 74% of American adults use the internet. A most recent research report on Mobile Access in 2010 has some interesting findings:
“Nearly half of all adults (47%) go online with a laptop using a Wi-Fi connection or mobile broadband card (up from the 39% who did so as of April 2009) while 40% of adults use the internet, email or instant messaging on a mobile phone (up from the 32% of Americans who did this in 2009). This means that 59% of adults now access the internet wirelessly using a laptop or cell phone.”
