Are you Connecting on the Move?

According to a fresh report by the Office for National Statistics nearly 50% of UK internet users are now surfing using their mobile phone data connections…

A 2010 survey showed 31% went online whilst mobile, rising to 45% this year & perhaps more interestingly, the latest 2011 survey showed a rise to 71% of internet-connected 16 > 24-year-olds.

As mentioned, whilst 71% of 16 to 24-year-olds who went online said they used mobile broadband only 8% of internet users aged 65 & over made use of the newer technology.

The ONS survey also found a dramatic rise in the use of wifi hotspots - a seven-fold increase since 2011 - suggesting that the rise of 3G has done little to slow demand for free and paid-for wireless access.

Survey results were based on a monthly survey of 1,800 randomly selected UK adults.
