Mobile Phones Surpass Landlines

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

Not exactly new, but I guess I missed it last month when the CDC reported that there are now more wireless-only households (20.2%) than landline-only households (14.5%).

The report also noted that Americans who are more likely to have wireless phones only: are adults living only with unrelated adult roommates (60.6%); rent their homes (39.2%); are between the ages of 25 and 29 years old (41.5%); live in poverty (30.9%); or near the poverty level (23.8%).

There are still far more households with both cell phones and landline phones (60%). Among these households with both landline and cellular telephones, almost 1 in 4 (24.4%) receive the majority of calls on their mobile phone. These "wireless-mostly" households, in turn, make up 14.5% of all households.
