Americans going online via CellPhone

According to Pew Research Center Internet & American Life Project.  Nearly two-thirds (63%) of cell phone owners now use their phone to go online. 

Those people that use their phone to go online are known as “cell internet users” and can be  anyone who uses their cell phone to access the internet or use email.

 91% of all Americans now own a cell phone, this means that 57% of all American adults are cell internet users.

Additionally, one third of these cell internet users (34%) mostly use their phone to access the internet, as opposed to other devices like a desktop, laptop, or tablet computer.  We call these individuals “cell-mostly internet users,” and they account for 21% of the total cell owner population.

Young adults, non-whites, and those with relatively low income and education levels are particularly likely to be cell-mostly internet users.
