A survey by British Ofcom shows that users prefer mobile devices versus traditional computers and laptops when the Internet is concerned.
Not less than 48 percent of users resort to using the phone when browsing the Web and connecting to the Internet, while only nine percent of users rely on desktop computers. Laptop devices are in second place with 24 percent, followed by tablets with 15 percent.
This is not a surprise if we know that the PC market has been declining for years, and only in 2018 it fell by about two percent. In 2013, for Internet access, desktop computers were used by 28% of users, and the total share of desktop and laptop devices was 74% five years ago.
Interestingly, 78% of respondents pointed out that they have a smartphone permanently connected to the Internet, while 14% of them think the Internet is too expensive.
