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

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